This program guide describes the Added Dimensions to Parent and Preschool Education program, a Developer/Demonstrator project of the National Diffusion Network. The Added Dimensions model provides a classroom program for 3- and 4-year-old children as well as parent involvement, home visitation and developmental screening components. The guide is one of a series of program publications written to assist others in adopting or adapting the Added Dimensions model. The guide is divided into eight chapters. Chapter I provides a short description of the program and an outline for using the guide in program planning. Chapter II presents strategies for determining and developing community support for the program. Chapter III discusses some of the decisions involved in program planning, including such issues as location, funding, and eligibility of children. Chapter IV describes the program requirements for staffing, and staff development, curriculum, classroom environment, parent involvement, and home visits. Chapter V describes the key elements of the model which must be included for successful adoption of the program. The remaining chapters present a sample month-by-month schedule describing program operations, a list of sources for program materials, and a collection of forms used in the program. Throughout the guide, numerous worksheets and step-by-step outlines are included to assist those interested in the adoption of the Added Dimensions model. (BD)
