Project Head Start, Report on the Prekindergarten Program, 1965.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
This report lists the goals of the Head Start project and describes its organization and procedures. A brief introduction describes the need for preschool education in Chicago and past and present programs which have attempted to meet the need. The report describes the children's social and economic deprivation. More attention, however, is given to personnel, such as staff selection and training, various components of a team of teaching aides, and the identification and services of volunteers. The document describes the school room, the pattern of daily activities, and the purpose and structure of curriculum and of special field trips. In addition, the report gives a description of the program's health services. A section on the evaluation program discusses results based on pretests and posttests, observations of many personnel involved, and health reports. The report contains numerous illustrations of children, toys, and equipment. (JS)
