Pyramid Educational Method for 3 to 6-Year-Old Children: Theory and Research.
van Kuyk, Jef J.
This study evaluated the effectiveness of the Pyramid method, an educational method for 3- to 6-year-olds. The Pyramid method seeks to improve young children's chances for a successful primary school career, particularly among ethnic minorities (of Turkish, Moroccan, Cape Verdian, and Surinam origins) and Dutch children of poorly educated parents. The study compared, over a 3 year period, the performance of a group of children participating in the Pyramid method to that of children in a control group. Findings indicated that the Pyramid method accelerated the development of children, both ethnic and Dutch, compared to the control group, with the greatest success when children entered the program in preschool.
