Summary

The developmental curriculum of the Parent-Child Early Education Saturday School for 4-year-olds is presented, and the specific skill competencies and curriculum activities used in the program are described under three major behavioral categories: language skills, gross and fine motor coordination, and math and science concepts. (Some attention is also given to the creative aspects of learning through music, art, and dramatic play.) The emphasis of the program is on diagnostic testing to observe and assess in a structured fashion to determine individual strengths, weaknesses, and modes of learning. Parents provide input on the child's physical, mental, and social development by means of a separate form, "My Preschool Child." Based on the results of this screening information, the teacher then chooses the best learning experiences for each child from among the developmental sequenced skill areas outlined in this teacher manual. The Skills Checklist, included at the end of the manual, contains all the objectives of the program, and is used to assist the teacher in determining the curriculum content appropriate for each child and to ascertain the individual's progress.
