The Link Between Pre-School and Primary Education: Report on Visits to Pilot Projects in 8 Member States of the Council for Cultural Co-operation.
This report presents a summary of visits to pilot projects which focused on the link between preschool and primary education in eight European countries of the Council for Cultural Cooperation. A brief overview of the problem of the relationships between preschool and primary education identifies priorities in the development of preschool education: the compensatory role of preschool education, preschool education in sparsely-populated areas, the integration of migrant children into preschool education, and cooperation between parents, preschool establishments and the community. Criteria for judging the continuity between preschool and primary education are listed; these criteria were used as a guideline for observation of the projects visited. Summaries of visits include information on the place of the project in the development of the national education system, and a description of the school in operation, and the strategies which are considered successful. The projects visited were: L'Ecole Ouverte ZAC St. Simeon, France; Villagio Scholastico, Italy; Continuity Pilot Projects, Switzerland; Modellprojekt Eingangsstufe, F.R.G.; Innovatory Co-operation Experiment for a Basic School, Netherlands; Introductory Phase Experiment, Denmark; Delves Infant School and Thomas Coram Children's Centre, U.K.; The Pre-school Centre and the Holy Ghost Junior High School, Ireland.
