Pre-School Education and Care.
Haystead, J.; And Others
Carried out in Scotland, the project described in this book examined what Scottish parents want from preschool education and why. The first chapter describes the present situation of preschool education and how it serves different kinds of parents. Chapter II discusses the kinds of preschool provision desired by parents living in three different geographical areas. Parents' knowledge of and their preferences for the different types of existing preschool facilities are examined in Chapters III and IV. Chapter V examines the extent to which parents want to be involved in preschool activities and Chapter VI discusses the characteristics of people not using preschool facilities in their local area. Implications of the project's findings are discussed and a summary is provided in Chapters VII and VIII. The instruments used to collect data are included in appendices. (Author/MP)
