Educational Day Care: An Installation Manual.
South Central Region Educational Lab. Corp., Little Rock, AR.
This manual evaluates and describes an educational day care model after 1 year of development. The model was designed for 3- and 5-year-old disadvantaged youngsters who exhibit low scores on intelligence, linguistic, and perceptual tests. Model objectives were based on the following criteria: (1) effectiveness of the curriculum with children, (2) manageability of staff and curriculum development activity, (3) flexibility, and (4) transportability of the model. The manual includes a description of population, a list of behavioral objectives for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds, an itemized list of equipment and materials, and a description of staff functions. The manual also includes a preliminary analysis of test scores used to compare experimental and control groups and measure language and perceptual development. Appendix One contains an outline of a 5-year plan for day care, and Appendix Two, which takes up 86 of the manual's 104 pages, contains examples of weekly planning sheets and instructional themes.
