Summary

More than 20 alternative curriculum models for early childhood education have been developed. One of the more recently developed is the Enabler Model, which is intended to provide regular on-site support, guidance and assistance to a local community for the implementation of preschool, day care and/or other early childhood programs. The Enabler Model has two phases: (1) the period of initiation, and (2) the period involving on-going maintenance of the Head Start Program. During the first period, the Enabler meets with all community groups to be involved in the program. During the second period, the Enabler's role shifts toward helping the local groups realize their goals. In sum, the six basic functions of the enabler are: supplier of information, interpreter of the program, link between all segments of the community, a source of support, a demonstration agent, and a neutralizer of conflict. It is probably easier to implement the Enabler Model when the Enabler does not live and work in the community to be served. (CK)
