Barbrack, Christopher R.; And Others
This report describes the Demonstration and Research Center for Early Childhood Education (DARCEE), a center initiated to develop knowledge to improve the educability of young children. The report includes a fold-out diagram of DARCEE intervention programs--completed, current, and planned. Each program is listed with (1) an explanation of the purpose and objectives of the program; (2) a listing of program publications and reports; and (3) a description of the individual project's setting, subject population, and the time period involved. Included in the report is a general description of the DARCEE program organized in terms of two classes of variables, aptitude for achievement and attitudes toward achievement. Programs for language, social, and physical development are discussed. Also explained are programs for parents which are built on the idea that training the mother to provide experiences for her children will promote their growth and development. DARCEE program implementation methods and evaluation approaches used are included in this report. (AJ)
