The Impact of Integration on Early Childhood Education.
Joffe, Carole
Different kinds of child care organizations (day care centers and homes, nurseries, and Head Start compensatory programs) are discussed. A description of the nursery program affiliated with the Berkeley Unified School District points out the delineation between classical or "social-emotional development" emphasis in child care, and the newer trend toward early academic instruction. At the Berkeley nursery, which emphasizes parent participation, it was found that many black parents wanted their children to receive basic academic instruction at an earlier age than many white parents, who advocated a non-rigid, social program for their children. The danger of stifling the creativity of preschool programs by assimilating them into elementary schools is also discussed. (ST)
