Vickery, David S.
The means of providing inexpensive educational facilities for early childhood care and education are presented in this report, which attempts to increase understanding of functional requirements and resource constraints. Contents include a discussion of child development relevant to physical facilities and specific accommodation requirements for care (health and nutrition), education, and management (personnel and supply). The final chapter offers innovative strategies for assimilating these components in an early childhood development center and suggests how these alternatives can be matched with available resources. References accompany each chapter. Fifty figures contain examples of facilities from different countries. (LMI)
