The Comprehensive Early Childhood Education Network.
Philadelphia School District, PA.
The Comprehensive Early Childhood Education Network (CECEN) is a city-wide, Title III-funded program in Philadelphia designed to provide: (1) information about already-existing programmatic approaches to early childhood education in the city; and (2) opportunities to begin the development of alternative approaches to staff, parental, and community participation in early childhood education. A District Advisory Council of 16 to 20 parents and professionals guides project activities. Explanation is given of the 3 interconnected components of the project: (1) a district-level information dissemination system; (2) a district-based training program for parents and professionals; and (3) a locally designed monitoring process that evaluates the effectiveness of both the district dissemination and training programs. CECEN provides as well a direct service to children through diagnosis and diagnostic therapy for preschool children with language, speech, and learning disorders. The programs offered include Get Set Day Care; Follow Through; Learning Centers; and special programs for the physically, mentally, and emotionally handicapped. A program directory and list of Philadelphia school officials are provided. (KM)
