There is a steadily increasing national interest and concern on the part of parents, teachers, administrators, and organized groups to make provisions for a sound education for children under 6 years old. In response to the inquiries from parents, State departments of education, school districts, operators of private schools, and public school personnel for information and materials dealing with current programs and values in nursery schools and kindergarten education, a survey was made of the relevant literature and research findings on preprimary education. This bulletin is designed to supply help to the field by interpreting the objects of education for young children; presenting research on the values of education for young children; interpreting programs and standards; distinguishing between nursery schools and kindergartens and other types of programs for young children; providing guidelines for the establishment and evaluation of nursery schools and kindergartens; and interpreting learning and growth characteristics of young children and their implications for the curriculum.
