Early Childhood Education Program and Its Components: Psychological Evaluation, Sensorimotor Skills Program, New Visions - A Children's Museum. Project Reports, Volume 4, Book 1, 1969.
Lane, Elizabeth M., Ed.
Although this project report emphasizes 1968-1969, the fourth year of Dayton's Early Childhood Education Program (ECE), it also refers to experiences ongoing from 1965 when ECE was initiated. The 1968-1969 program was a continuation of efforts to provide concentrated and continuous learning experiences for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children in perceptual, motivational, and social skills according to a previously developed plan. A second goal was to help parents provide a supportive home environment conducive to positive family development. The program served 2,934 economically disadvantaged children. The first part of the report explains the goals and nature of the children's pre-kindergarten classroom program and the parent program, discusses the organization and staff roles, curriculum, and the part played by kindergarten in the ECE program. Also outlined are the activities of the social service staff and the ECE nurse, the nutrition program, and the parent program. The remainder of the document is a compilation of three separate resumes which provide detailed information on (1) psychological evaluation of ECE including tests used and data analysis, (2) a longitudinal research report of a sensorimotor skills program, and (3) NEW VISIONS--a children's art museum where young children are encouraged to explore the artifacts.
