A Source Report for Developing Parent-Child Educational Centers.
Moore, Harold E.; Stout, Irving W.
This "source report" presents the research, process, and findings involved in developing a program for a parent-child educational center for the new city of Litchfield Park, Arizona. The center is intended to be a basic neighborhood unit of the public school system and will serve both parents and children; the latter, from infancy through 7 years old. The activities of the center are to be carried on through the mutual initiative and involvement of parents and professional staff for the purposes of (1) providing for the developmental well-being of the infants and young children of the city, and (2) achieving an ever increasing effectiveness of parental skills. The report is divided into six major sections: (1) Introduction and Orientation, (2) Review of Research Relating to Parent-Child Educational Centers, (3) The Rationale for Parent-Child Educational Centers, (4) The Center Program: Working Paper No. 2, (5) A Plan for Program Functioning: Working Paper No. 3, and (6) A Plan of Action for Parent-Child Educational Centers. "A Plan of Action for Parent-Child Educational Centers" (PS 001 609) also concerns this study. (WD)
