Schools for Early Childhood. Profiles of Significant Schools.
The focus of this publication is on the creation of learning facilities for two-, three-, and four-year-old children. This volume illustrates graphically (1) 11 new centers that were specifically constructed for early education, and (2) old facilities--houses, storefronts, and warehouses--that have been successfully remodeled to provide early education centers. Also described is a nonschool approach to early learning for communities where lack of finances or interest limits the development of early education centers. The structures vary widely in space usage, types of equipment, and genre of teaching aids, differences dictated by considerations of finances or space. Because some facilities designs are the results of decisions concerning the program the school is offering, these program objectives are spelled out. (Photographs may reproduce poorly.) (Author)
