This segment of the Early Childhood Library Specialist Program is known as the parent/child project and it functions as a model to demonstrate how library oriented institutions can work with parents and their children, and serves as an agent for the dissemination of information to parents and young children. The parent/child project attempts to demonstrate that children can visit their libraries, media-centers, and other such planned programs and collections for a selected number of hours each day and, under the direction of an Early Childhood Specialist who also works with the parent, make significant learning progress that can be measured and reflect meaningful results. The Parent Practicum continues throughout the three-year experimental parent/child project, with"mini-workshops" held at six-month intervals. Careful records are to be kept on each child, so that parent and Library Specialist may test the validity of the experiences. The approach is innovative and should give interesting results.
