THIS PROGRAM ATTEMPTED TO ESTABLISH A RAPPORT BETWEEN TEACHERS AND PARENTS, AND TO PREPARE THE CHILDREN FOR REGULAR SCHOOL CLASSES. THE CHILDREN WERE PUT IN A SENSORY-RICH LEARNING ENVIRONMENT TO AROUSE INTEREST, STIMULATE THINKING, AND PROVOKE QUESTIONING. A WARM, ACCEPTING ATMOSPHERE WAS PROVIDED IN ORDER TO DISPEL FEAR AND SUSPICION. A GUIDE FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT USED BY THE FOUR DISTRICTS PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM WAS INCLUDED IN THE TEXT. SEVERAL RESEARCH PROJECTS HAVE BEEN STARTED TO EVALUATE THIS PROGRAM. MARKED SUCCESS HAS BEEN FOUND FROM KINDERGARTEN TEACHER OBSERVATIONS OF THE CHILDREN WHO COMPLETED THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM.
