Hare, Jo Ann; And Others
This curriculum for parent education through cooperative preschools has a sequential approach, with topics developed for parents with different age children enrolled in the various laboratory settings. Introductory materials include the goals and objectives for community college parent cooperative programs, methods of presentation, and a curriculum matrix. Curricula are provided for parent/infant, parent/walkabout, and parent/toddler programs. Each consists of 11 modules in these areas: physical development, cognitive development, emotional development, social development, self-esteem, discipline, family relationships, stress, health and safety, nutrition, and toys and books. A module may consist of one or more topics, each presented in this format: instructional purpose, suggested activities to cover the topic, and helpful resources (publications, audiovisual aids, and handouts). Possible subjects for workshops are listed. Additional modules are presented that outline issues relevant to working parents, single parents, rural parents, and parents at risk. Most are suitable to an evening or weekend workshop mode. The format for each module includes instructional purpose, areas that may be covered, and helpful resources (publications, books for children, applicable parent education curriculum topics, audiovisual aids, handouts, and community resources). A quarterly curriculum for an agency-referred parent cooperative class is also provided. A resource list is appended. (YLB)
