Kramer School -- Something for Everybody.
Caldwell, Bettye M.
A description of the Kramer Project to improve the general welfare of children and families is given. The purpose of the project is to provide age-appropriate developmental guidance from early infancy through the end of childhood years. The school, located in the heart of Little Rock, Ark., provides an educational program for children from infancy through sixth grade. It involves 250 children from 127 families and two foster homes. Approximately 150 additional families are involved through home visits and other research projects. Sixty percent are black. One-third are from families receiving some type of welfare. Components of the program include a comprehensive early childhood program beginning in early infancy; a dynamic elementary program offering continuity of developmental support; day care for all children who need the service; a broad research program in child development and education; a comprehensive array of supportive family services; and a training program for staff and students. Though the program is still in the experimental stage, it has engendered a great amount of interest. (DJ)
