Expanding Early Education: The Extended Day Kindergarten.
Ferguson-Florissant School District, Ferguson, MO.
This booklet briefly describes an extended day kindergarten program designed to provide a well-rounded curriculum stressing cognitive, social, and physical development; a longer period of time daily for the child in school (four and a half to five hours instead of only three); and greater opportunity for the establishment of parent-teacher relationships. Part of the teacher's time is allocated to home visits in which the teacher discusses the child's progress and ways parents can help the child at home and at school. The three plans used in organizing the extended day schedule are outlined. General information on grouping, use of parent aides, and the establishment of the parent-teacher relationships is included.
