Mobile Pre-School Units in New Zealand. Volume II: A Series of Case Studies.
Kennedy, Shelley; And Others
This text, the second of two volumes that describe results of a 1988 study of mobile preschool units in New Zealand, presents a series of descriptive case studies of the nine mobile preschool units operating in New Zealand. A major purpose of the case studies is to show similarities of and differences between the units. Factors accounting for differences between units include the nature of the communities served, the extent of community interest in the units, and the number of children in the units. The profiles typically describe: (1) the background of the unit; (2) needs and characteristics of the communities served; (3) the role of parents; (4) the population of children and parents served; (5) the unit's equipment and facilities; (6) the unit's weekly venue; and (7) activities in the sessions held in the unit.
