The Conference on Early Childhood Education was held during Early Childhood Education Week (March 1968) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Conference participants included Bureau of Indian Affairs' (BIA) school personnel responsible for the establishment and coordination of proposed BIA kindergartens, representatives of National, public, and voluntary organizations and agencies, colleges and universities, State Departments of Education, and other school and community representatives who are concerned and involved in Indian education. The conference provided an opportunity for participants to consider, explore, and exchange ideas about the objectives and factors involved in planning, establishing, and implementing comprehensive early childhood education programs and to give participants the opportunity for continued dialogues to help assure the development of these programs. The conference report presents speeches, discussions, and question and answer periods considering early childhood education from the perspective of: the conference objectives; anthropology; the structure of the learning process; a staff development program using a college, teachers, aides, administrators, and program assistants; health and nutrition; social services; parent and community roles; curriculum development; and the next steps for BIA implementation. Symposium chairmen and discussion coordinators are listed in the front of the publication; speakers are listed by section. (KM)
