Program Guidelines for Kindergarten.
Bates, Sue Ann
This document presents guidelines for kindergarten programs and identifies goals based on the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social development of children 4 to 6 years of age. Separate chapters briefly focus on the kindergarten child's brain development; the role of play in children's learning; the teacher's role in guiding play; the provision of a learning environment which offers exploration, achievement, and experimentation; and curriculum design emphasizing individual differences. Somewhat lengthier treatment is given to the components of learning centers, aspects of daily activities such as transitions and pacing, and schedule development. Some sample schedules are provided, and the special needs of a full-day kindergarten are addressed. Appendices provide the titles, prices, and sources of curriculum bulletins as well as a bibliography on kindergarten. (Author/DB)
