A Survey of Early Childhood Development Activities in Oklahoma and a Proposed Plan for the Establishment of an Oklahoma State Office of Early Childhood Development.
George, Shirley Collier
This report discusses two aspects of the status of early childhood development services in Oklahoma: (1) a survey of the present efforts, programs, and supportive services in the state; and (2) a proposed plan to establish a new state office of early childhood development. The report reflects the philosophy that every child in the state has a right to opportunities which insure total development and that it is the state's responsibility to provide these opportunities. In the first section, a thesis for a model state process of establishing quality programs is presented, stressing the developmental stages involved and the structures and objectives of the state office. Also, the major findings about Oklahoma child development activities are listed. The second part of the report includes a discussion of the proposed process for creating a state office, duties of an appointed task force, location of the office in state governmental structure, staffing, and publications.
