Demonstration Program in Infant Care and Education (September 1968 - June 1971). Final Report.
The Ontario Institute and the Canadian Mothercraft Society report accumulated findings on all phases of their 3-year demonstration infant day care center. Infants enrolled in the center were either advantaged or disadvantaged, had working mothers and ranged in age from 3 to 30 months of age. The center also served as a training facility for infant caretaker-teachers. The program had been designed to facilitate infants' cognitive, personality, and social development through personalized adult-child interaction, guided learning situations, free play and specialized care. Both infants and students-in-training made gains on a variety of measures. Chapter titles include: General Plan of the Investigation, Study of Infant Development, Study of Student Development, Investigation of Parents, Social Implications. References include a bibliography as well as a reprint of a paper titled "A Developmental Learning Approach to Infant Care in a Group Setting" which comprises one-third of the document. (WY)
