Papers presented covered: (1) the preprimary project, a study of children's experiences prior to formal schooling (C. Garden); (2) the role of the state versus the role of parents in early childhood education (P. Kennedy); (3) three studies of the role of parents as teachers (S. McNaughton); (4) a government project for parent support and education (J. Gerritsen); (5) the Maori Women's Welfare League and its parenting programs (A. Reriti-Crofts); (6) the Te Kohanga Reo Trust, which aims at fostering the use of the Maori language among Maori young people (I. Twhiwhirangi); (7) general condsiderations on parent education in New Zealand (B. McMillan); and (8) a home-based intervention project to help parents support their children's mathematical development (J. Young-Loveridge).
