Summary

The effectiveness of the "Immigrant Resource Project" preschool program is evaluated. The preschools meet for two hours twice a week while the childrens' parents are in English as second language classes. Pupils range in age from 2 to 6 years and are drawn from a wide variety of immigrant backgrounds. The objectives are to teach English and foster social and cultural adjustment. English is introduced through songs and stories. Cultural and social adjustment are fostered through child-teacher interactions focusing on appropriate play behavior, experiences with toys and play environments, the learning of social frames, and the development of positive self-concepts outside of the family. It is concluded that the project is successfully providing linguistic, educational, and social services for both immigrant children and their parents. (RW)
