Developments in Pre-School Education and Implications for Philosophy and Practice in Day Care

By Cornelia Goldsmith

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1965

The author discusses changes occurring in the field of early childhood education, in response to demographic, social, technological and theoretical trends. She traces the development of educational models away from the mere memorization of facts and towards learning skills and developing the total person. Arguing that Project Head Start offers opportunities to grow and change the practice of day care, the author asserts that Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) in particular have a double responsibility to draw on their historical past while remaining open to new principles for the future in their preschool operations.
