Lane, Elizabeth M., Ed.
This report on the 1969-70 Dayton Early Childhood Education program is divided into three parts: (1) an overview of the ECE program, (2) a description of the program components of ECE, and (3) an evaluation. Section 1 includes an introduction and reports on the growth of the program, how the program contributes to the kindergarten program, the objectives, program organization and staff roles, and the curriculum. Section 2 explains the value of curriculum consultants to insure unified curriculum design, enumerates the special staff services, describes the health and nutrition program, and discusses the tasks of social workers and involvement of parents. Section 3 reports that although tests demonstrate that children do improve cognitive skills from their experience in the ECE program, gains are quickly lost without reinforcement and are not evident in kindergarten or first grade. Tables are included. (Author/AJ)
