A Curriculum Guide for Early Childhood Education, Ages 3-8 (with Emphasis on Ages 3-5).
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
This curriculum guide was prepared for teachers, administrators and librarians to assist them in designing educational programs for children generally between the ages of three to eight, with emphasis on ages three to five. The guide provides a framework for THE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF A PROGRAM - the philosophy, goals, objectives, curriculum, teaching-learning strategies, physical environment, instructional materials, evaluation, and parent education. This document is aimed toward helping teachers and administrators to plan, develop, implement, and evaluate their early childhood programs and should be construed as a resource rather than as a classroom or school plan for instruction. However, guidelines are provided for making major school-level decisions on matters ranging from determination of objectives to purchase of instructional materials. (Author/CS)
