Colorado Early Childhood Study.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver. Planning and Evaluation Unit.
The Colorado State Board of Education allocated Title IV-V funds in 1975 for a study of the status of early childhood education in Colorado. The purposes of the study were to: (1) gather data relevant to early childhood education on the status of all children from birth through age 5; (2) identify needs of children of this age within the state; and (3) identify and suggest possible approaches to meeting the needs of Colorado children in this age group. This study is intended to furnish basic data that can be used to design plans to serve the educational and child care needs of children from birth through age 5. This study focuses mainly on the situation of children, outside the home, that is, in prekindergartens in public schools, public and privately operated day care homes and centers, and Head Start programs. The health and nutritional status of children in Colorado is also investigated. Included are chapters on prekindergarten public school programs (including those for children with special needs), child care, Head Start, health care, parent education and involvement and higher education. Detailed appendices include data on prekindergarten programs, child care, Head Start programs, health care, higher education and demographic data.(Author/MS)
