New York State PreKindergarten Programs in New York City: Strategies for Creating Multicultural Early Childhood Programs. A Collaborative Approach.
This report begins by discussing the role of the New York Education Department; community education agencies; school boards, administrators, teachers, and their associations; community-based organizations; and the role of other state and local agencies in creating collaborative approaches to early childhood programming. Several collaborative early childhood programs are described to make up the bulk of the report, including: the Adolescent Child Care Program (funded by the Child Care and Development Block Grant); Early Childhood Direction centers (statewide referral and information networks for parents and professionals who suspect a child under five years of age to have a disability or be at risk of developing a disability); the New York State Prekindergarten Program; Community Schools Programs; Even Start Family Literacy program; Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program; programs for students with disabilities, including the SuperStart Prekindergarten Program, the SuperStart Plus program, and Kindergarten Plus, Grade One Plus, and Grade Two Plus programs; and the Summer Primary/Promoting Success program. A list of 12 areas in early childhood programming for which multicultural strategies can be developed and a discussion of conclusions end the report. (DR)
