Summary

Preschool personnel (61 teachers and 34 administrators) from six locations throughout Texas were surveyed in order to describe the types of materials purchased and desired for preschool settings. A survey questionnaire was designed to address the following major questions: (1) who selects and buys materials? (2) how much money is spent on materials? (3) what type of media and materials are currently used? (4) how do personnel find out about materials? and (5) what types of media and materials are needed in the future? Results of the survey indicated that approximately $300 is spent per classroom on a yearly basis and that individual teachers personally purchase about $100 of additional materials. Purchases are made primarily on the basis of items seen in training workshops or displays, local stores, and catalogs. Storybooks, manipulatives, toys, and games are very high purchase items (100%). In terms of future purchases, much of the same items are desired, plus records and pictures. Well over half of this group spend more than five hours of personal time each week in making materials. If given a choice, respondents would buy items which require some preparation time but provide greater quantity rather than a smaller number of completed items. (Author/SS)
