The Junior Kindergarten: An Annotated Bibliography.
Scott, Deborah, Comp.
This bibliography includes materials that address themselves to the problems arising in setting up "junior kindergartens" to enroll children 4 years of age. It is restricted to preschool education within a public school setting and does not deal with the question of day care centers and private nursery schools. The bibliography is divided into four sections. The first section is a general introduction to the theory of early education and provides a background against which a decision can be made on whether to establish a junior kindergarten. The second section describes a number of curriculum guidelines specifically developed for children at the junior kindergarten level, and discusses evaluations that have been carried out to assess the effectiveness of some of these programs. Section 3 contains reports from some educational committees set up to study the need for and feasibility of extending public education to younger pupils. The last section describes a number of specific preschool programs recently developed that illustrate various approaches to early education and the teaching of young children. As much relevant Canadian material as possible has been included in the bibliography, and research studies have been limited to those carried out in the past five years. (Author/CS)
