This collection of papers briefly describes a curriculum for an early childhood education program based on parent participation and community involvement, and offers guidelines for school volunteers. The early childhood program described calls for: (1) parents and volunteers to be involved in the planning, implementing, modifying and evaluating of the program; (2) an individualized diagnostic/prescriptive approach to learning based on continued assessment of pupil needs; and (3) an emphasis on language development, parenthood education, and children's health needs. The guidelines include topical discussions and suggestions for the volunteer to use in working with the early childhood program. An extended guide to children's books and selected references for the school volunteer conclude the report. (CS)
