A Report on the Evaluation of the Parent/Child Toy-Lending Library Program.
Nimnicht, Glen P.; And Others
The Parent/Child Toy-Library Program is described and a report is given of its evaluation. The program is a 10-week course for parents of three- and four year-old children, an educational Toy Library for the parents, and a training program for the teacher-librarians who will teach the course and operate the library. Two toys were rejected on the basis of the evaluation--color cubes and sifo shapes. Evaluation of the course by use of an open-ended questionnaire indicated that the parents felt more competent in helping their children and had a better understanding of what to expect of the child. Evaluation of the children's achievement was made through comparison of pretest and posttest scores on the Responsive Test. Results of the evaluation indicate that the children learned a considerable amount because of their involvement with the program. (DJ)
