This monograph describes a pilot kindergarten program conducted in Fairfax County (Virginia) schools in 1967-68 and supervised by the Center for Effecting Educational Change. The stated purpose of the pilot kindergarten program was to develop demonstration kindergarten classes at seven selected Fairfax County schools in order to obtain information and make recommendations for implementing the program on a countrywide basis during 1968-69. This monograph is a result of the acquisition of such information and the making of such recommendations. The contents of the monograph are divided into two sections: (1) the program and (2) the evaluation. Eleven specific objectives of the program are delineated. Evaluation of the program took the form of measuring the degree of attainment of these objectives as reflected in the tests, inventories, surveys, and questionnaires administered to the pupils and teachers. The evaluation section treats, in brief, each of the eleven program objectives. Included in the document are statistical charts of pupil performance results on the Metropolitan Readiness Test and the Wide Range Achievement Test. (WD)
