The Learning to Learn Program was designed to help children acquire the abilities for dealing with challenges and problems. The program provides a unique preschool experience for disadvantaged children. The Learning to Learn curriculum has maintained its original characteristics throughout the years and is designed to help children develop appropriate strategies for gathering information, solving problems, and making decisions. Unique practices and materials are used to provide optimum environment in which children can "learn to learn" through manipulation, exploration, and experimentation. The child moves from motor manipulation to development of perceptual imagery, and then to symbolic experiences through the medium of interesting and challenging games and game-like activities. Each day after classes, the director, teacher, and aide meet to discuss the day's activities, special problems, and individual progress of pupils. The most important materials are the language and mathematics games and activities. (Author)
