The symposium on research into preschool education was the second in a series designed to facilitate exchange of views, experiences and other information among educational researchers. This volume contains a selection of the papers presented. The following are noted in the conclusions of the symposium: (1) preschool education should work in close cooperation with parents, supplementing but not supplanting the home; (2) preschool education has a vital role to play in combatting social disadvantages; (3) there are recent tendencies to emphasize carefully structured programs, which seem able to produce positive results; (5) there should be closer cooperation between preschool and primary levels to avoid the loss of advantages gained from preschool experience. The papers provided here include the following: (1) "Factors Which Have Influenced the Development of Preschool Education"; (2) "The Present State of Preschool Education in the Member States of the Council of Europe"; (3) "Problems and Trends of Research into Preschool Education"; (4) "Some Psychological Aspects of Various Preschool Programmes"; (5) "The Influence of Research into Cognitive Development on Current Trends in Preschool Education"; (6) "France: The Organisation of Research into Preschool Education"; (7) "Sweden: Research Concerning the Development of the Content and Methods of the Preschool Curriculum"; (8) "Netherlands: Preschool Education and Developmental Psychology--Research Concerning the Age Group 2-7 Years"; and (9) "Finland: The Effect of Training on the Grammar of Preschool Children."
