This research analyzes families� educational curriculum heeding two substantial aspects: a) the selection of everyday activities in which the child takes part, both daily and on holidays, and b) the sequential organization of the mentioned activities throughout the family�s working day. In both cases, it is studied to what extent the parents� implicit theories are related to the content and sequential organization of those activities. Specifically, the environmentalist and constructivist implicit theories were chosen so as to study their influence on those aspects of families� curriculum�s pattern. The sample was made up by 70 mothers with children of ages ranging from 7 through 11 years old. Lastly, the quality of the educational context of constructivist and environmentalist mothers is analyzed, considering the kind of familiar curriculum. Results show that both types of theories are related to the selection of activities their children carry out and their sequential organization throughout the day, which contribute to arrange educative environments with well defined peculiarities.
