This program initiated by the Central Cities Educational Development Center was designed to offer experiences which lay the groundwork for intellectual development and school achievement to underprivileged children two to five years of age. The Center has assumed a somewhat different composition and focus in each of the four years of its operation, beginning as it did as an experimental Title III project, with an enrollment of 182 children, taught by 10 teachers and 40 aides. During 1971-72 the Center was financed locally except for unexpended Title III funds authorized for followup research and had 286 pupils taught by 3 teachers working with 27 aides. Opportunities are provided so that each child may develop academic skills, a positive self-image, and expectations of achievement. Detailed findings from annual evaluation reports indicate that the Center has given young children the means to make significant cognitive and affective gains. (Author/RJ)
