Rice, Margaret; Doyle, Patrick
Brief reports provided in this paper document aspects of a neighborhood-center project in Hull, England. The project was aimed primarily at facilitating parent/community involvement in the education of very young children through the establishment of parent activity groups. Beginning with activity groups such as mother/toddler clubs, a community toy library, and a parents' support group, the project expanded to assess differences in developing parent/child activities within the purview of local education authorities and social services agencies. An urban studies group was formed to identify problems of and resources for teachers and to support the project's staff. Specifically, the first report lists the goals of the project and provides additional background information concerning support personnel and organizations. The second report contains the proposed budget for the project and indicates how a grant from the Van Leer Foundation would be spent. The third report briefly outlines the project's development plan and points out the locus and scope of activities from 1980 through 1983.
