Parent-Child Educational Centers: A Facility for Early Childhood Education Ages, Infancy to Seven Years.
Arizona State Univ., Tempe.
A Parent-Child Educational Center is a coordinating activity purposing to serve parents along with their children from a child's infancy through the age of seven. Such a center is carried on through the mutual initiative and involvement of parents and professional staff. The center serves parents by (1) providing for the developmental well-being of their infants and young children, and (2) assisting them in the achievement of continuous and increased effectiveness in their parental skills. The model project, designed specifically for the climate of Arizona, has shaded outdoor education spaces, wide overhangs, and parent-teacher conference and work areas placed throughout the activity spaces between the indoor and outdoor areas.
