Prenatal to Preschool: An Integrated Approach to School Readiness for Native Hawaiian Children.
Herman, Hannah; And Others
This report outlines the Pre-kindergarten Educational Program (PREP) of Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estate in Hawaii, an integrated early education program serving families with children from the prenatal stage through age 5. The paper first discusses the program's three components and how they adapt to developmental changes in children and families, moving from a home visiting delivery system to a mobile neighborhood traveling preschool to a more traditional center-based preschool. It then discusses eight domains across which the three components are integrated: (1) theory; (2) training; (3) curriculum; (4) family involvement; (5) context of the community; (6) linkage with community resources; (7) assessment; and (8) transitions. Charts and tables emphasize the three components' features, theoretical basis, goals, and philosophy. (MDM)
