Education of the Infant and Young Child.
Denenberg, Victor H., Ed.
The purpose of this book is to bring together information on the conditions which would aid in maximizing the learning potential and behavioral development of the very young child with particular emphasis on the types of experiences that should be received by young babies who spend part of their time in a day care center. The papers presented by Jerome Kagan, William Mason, Hanus Papousek, Earl Schaefer, David Weikart, and Dolores Lambie discuss: (1) why poor children do badly in school situations and possible remedies, (2) the effects of early deprivation on animals, (3) recent European experience with day care centers, (4) the need for education to start very early in the infant's life, and (5) some experimental regimens for enriching the educational experience of very young children. Discussions of the themes of these papers by psychologist Jerome Bruner and by Richard Orton, the Associate Director of Project Head Start, follow. Finally, editor Victor Denenberg abstracts from the previous material a number of factors which are of critical concern when setting up a day care center. (Author/WY)
