This report focuses on the effects of two enhanced math interventions in New York City. Making Pre-K Count involved randomly assigning pre-k programs to receive an evidence-based early math curriculum and associated professional development or to a "pre-k as usual" condition.  In the High 5's study, students from the Making Pre-K Count program classrooms in pre-k were individually randomly assigned to small-group math clubs in their kindergarten year.  The impacts of these interventions along with contributing factors and implications are discussed.

Type Journal Article Abstract

 

This small study included 51 parents at three childcare centers in New York City.  It provides background information on the importance of interactions for parents; both with teachers and other parents.  The researchers suggest that little is known about the extent, location, and content of these interactions. However, building these social ties is valuable.  The various types of adult interactions at the centers are discussed, along with limitations of the research and recommendations.
