A National Survey of the Parent-Child Center Program.
Lazar, Irving; And Others
This research report is a description and analysis of the development and status of the first year of operation of the Parent-Child Center (PCC) program within Project Head Start. The perspective of the report is national, individual centers being regarded as illustrative examples of the national program. Because of the early stage of development and complexity of PCC activities, little attention is focused on outcomes and impacts. The conclusions and recommendations offered in this report must be considered in the context of the evolutionary nature of PCC. Chapter titles include: Organizational Development of the Parent-Child Centers; The Physical Facilities; The Parent-Child Center Staff; The Families Served; Programs for Children; Programs for Parents and Other Family Members; Health Services; Social Services; and Cost Analysis. Six extensive appendixes, 45 tables, 12 graphs, four figures, and a bibliography are provided. A review and summary of the report is available as PS 004 526. (WY)
