MEMORANDUM ON--FACILITIES FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION.
DEUTSCH, MARTIN; AND OTHERS
BECAUSE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT HAS SIGNIFICANCE FOR THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD, INSTRUCTIONAL SPACE SHOULD BE PROVIDED THAT WILL FACILITATE INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT. GUIDELINES ARE GIVEN FOR GENERAL AREA, BLOCK ALCOVE, MANIPULATIVE TOY AREA, READING AND LISTENING AREA, DOLL AND HOUSEKEEPING AREA, ART AREA, TUTORING BOOTH, CUBICLES, TOILETS, STORAGE, OUTDOOR PLAY AREA, AND OBSERVATION SPACE. THE SQUARE FOOTAGE, CONTENTS, PURPOSES, AND ADAPTABILITY OF THESE ELEMENTS ARE GIVEN IN DETAIL. THE AIM IS TO ACHIEVE AN ENVIRONMENT THAT FOSTERS THE EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM CONTAINED WITHIN THE SPACE. THREE EXAMPLES OF EXISTING FACILITIES ARE DESCRIBED TO ILLUSTRATE THE GUIDELINES' APPLICATION TO RENOVATING A HOUSE, REMODELING A PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOM, AND DESIGNING A NEW EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION CENTER. (FLOOR PLANS AND BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED.) (LG)
