The purpose of the Model Early Childhood Learning Program of Baltimore, Md., City Schools is to provide experiences for disadvantaged children which will constitute the prerequisite developmental history needed to undertake first grade concepts and skills. The project's stated objectives are: (1) to improve the measured aptitude or readiness for reading and other academic achievement of children from disadvantaged homes; (2) to provide these children with the means of attaining skills necessary to achieve success in the competitive and social worlds; (3) to improve their self concepts; and, (4) to improve the attitudes toward self and their parents. It was found that compared with children in control groups who have had no such experiences or with those who participated in other programs with similar purposes, project children achieved remarkable gains in IQ.
