The Perceived Effects of a Four-Year-Old Kindergarten Program on Children Living in a Native American Community
Ouimette, Larry William
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Edgewood College
This case study examined the extent to which a voluntary public-school 4-year-old kindergarten program in a Native American Community integrates the cultural context of the community, influences student social and academic growth, and prepares students for kindergarten. This qualitative study interviewed 4-year-old kindergarten teachers, kindergarten teachers, and parents of children who participated in the program to gather their perceptions regarding the effects of the program on student readiness for kindergarten. Descriptive statistics in table and narrative formats are organized according to the four research questions. Findings may assist districts with a significant Native American or other minority population as well districts considering the implementation or evaluation of a 4-year-old kindergarten or pre-kindergarten program.
