Early Childhood- and Pre-school Education in Denmark.
These two booklets provide overviews of educational programs for young children in Denmark. The first booklet briefly outlines recent initiatives in preschool education. Four types of preschool institutions currently in operation are indicated. The major portion of the booklet is focused on the aims and methods of day nurseries, nursery schools/kindergartens, and preschool classes. In conclusion, school administration, school finance and teacher training are discussed. The second booklet presents a summary of an investigation of various dimensions of home-school cooperation in the years immediately before and after children start school. Basic pedagogical and organizational issues, which may require changes in legislation or new regulations, are raised in the discussion of preschool classes, day care problems, home-school cooperation, the curriculum, and needed change in the structure of large schools. Specific legislative changes and an experimental program are recommended. In conclusion, the economic consequences of the proposals are pointed out. (Author/RH)
