Educating Parents on Developmentally Age-Appropriate Learning in Preschool.
Brown, Mitzi C.
This practicum paper reports on a project undertaken to enhance the knowledge of age-appropriate learning for parents of 3-year-old preschoolers. The project implemented a variety of techniques and strategies to improve parent knowledge, including parent education classes, a monthly newsletter for parents that addressed current research on age-appropriate learning, and the creation of a parent support group. Results from surveys conducted immediately before and 12 weeks after the introduction of the program indicated that the project was successful in increasing parents' knowledge of age-appropriate activities and expectations for their preschool children. Appendixes provide: (1) copies of the parent survey; (2) results of the pre- and post-implementation survey; (3) copies of the parent newsletter; (4) a parent self-help checklist; (5) a list of child development characteristics; (6) a list of appropriate books for preschoolers; (7) a children's story, "Scat the Cat"; (8) tips for parents; (9) a list of reading and writing readiness skills; and (10) a copy of the parent support group questionnaire.
