Experimental Bicultural Early Childhood Program. Annual Evaluation Report.
This document presents the evaluation design and findings of the second year of operation of the Experimental Bicultural Early Childhood Program, an Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III project operating in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The major objectives of the program were: (1) to facilitate the development of school readiness skills for 3- and 4-year-olds in the Pre-Kindergarten component of the program; (2) to promote maturational growth and development of certain skills with 3-year-olds through parental orientation and training in the home, and to make available to families educational toys and other materials, using the child's dominant language; and (3) to provide a Kindergarten experience for children who participated in the program the previous year, and to promote readiness for a formal learning situation in terms of commonly accepted learning readiness skills. The target population was approximately 65% Spanish-speaking. The evaluation technique, process and sequence, and the results, are presented, discussed, and analyzed. (MS)
