Priorities in Pre-School Education.
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
This volume contains the texts of reports from four European symposia on pre-school education which were held under the auspices of the Council for Cultural Co-operation of the Council of Europe. The first two symposia were concerned with different aspects of links between preschool and primary education. The third symposium focused on the integration of migrants' children into pre-school education. Participants discussed how such education could help each migrant child and his family to become integrated members of the host community without causing them to lose the benefit of their native culture. The theme of the fourth symposium was preschool education for children who live in isolated rural areas. The importance of early social relationships outside the home, local culture, and teacher training were discussed. Each report includes addresses, lectures, presentation of research, reports of working groups, recommendations, and a list of participants. (Author/SS)
