Early Childhood Education.
Aaron, Robert L.
The Research and Development Center of the University of Georgia investigated the behavioral differences among advantaged and disadvantaged preschool children as part of an attempt to develop the most efficient way of assuring success at the first-grade level. A comparative study of a preschool stimulation program and the traditional kindergarten program was made. The socioeconomic status of the subjects was considered. While other studies on preschool children conducted at the Research and Development Center are cited, only the tabulated results for a selected sample are presented and discussed. These results indicate that the disadvantaged group of the stimulated preschool program was superior to the advantaged group of the traditional kindergarten program in auditory memory, book-related behaviors, letter and word reading, and writing behaviors. This paper reviews earlier studies on early reading and preschool programs and includes 25 references and a chart summarizing selected experimental preschool programs and their results. (NS)
