Parent-Child Early Education Program: A Summary of Results During Three Project Years. Final Evaluation Report.
Ferguson-Florissant School District, Ferguson, MO.
This report presents the final evaluation of the Saturday School Program which was designed to fully involve the parents, teaching staff, and children in early childhood education. Results of the third project year as well as a comparison between other project years and a general summation of achievement of program objectives are presented. Students, as a whole, showed growth both in cognitive and affective areas of development. The parents showed increasing positive modes of perceiving and interacting with their children; they also exhibited growth in using appropriate teaching techniques. Likewise, the teachers showed increases in their knowledge of child development, in the use of appropriate teaching techniques, and in establishing positive relationships with parents and children. Specific cognitive, social, emotional, and physical objectives for each of the program's components (the child, the parent, the staff, the handicapped, and the management process) are presented, analyzed statistically, and evaluated. Approximately one-half of the document consists of statistical information. (SDH)
