Summary

This report presents program evaluation results for three years of operation of the Clinch-Powell Educational Cooperative Early Childhood Education Program, a home-based, parent oriented program which serves four rural Appalachian counties and includes the use of home visits, mobile classrooms, and a TV program accompanied by a Parent Guide. Descriptions of the program's objectives, components, staff training, target population and comparison group are given. Results of the annual evaluations of the project have indicated that the program has had a measurable effect on children's cognitive and social abilities. Children who participated in the program have scored significantly higher on the Metropolitan Readiness Test and the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test than children who had not been in a preschool program. Children who had been in the program for two years scored significantly higher on both tests than children who had been in the program only one year. Parents, home visitors and teachers rated children's social behavior and, for nearly all items, posttest scores were significantly more positive than pretest scores. Parents' evaluations of the program for three years have been consistently very positive. (Author/ED)
