Get Set Day Care Program.
Philadelphia School District, PA.
This report presents the evaluation outcomes of the Get Set Day Care Program currently operating in the School District of Philadelphia and outlines the contents of the instructional program designed to reach these goals. It was hypothesized that the Get Set Day Care children with two years of previous Get Set Day Care experience would: (1) perform better on the Stanford Early School Achievement Test than the children with no previous Get Set Day Care experience in the kindergarten program, and (2) would perform equally as well as all of the children in the kindergarten program in the Philadelphia School District. The sample in the treatment group involved 1,391 children with two years of previous Get Set Day Care experience and 702 children with no previous Get Set Day Care or other nursery experience. The study indicated that Get Set Day Care experiences promote the child's ability to learn in the school environment, particularly in the areas of reading and mathematics. (CS)
