Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was to trace the development of The Children's House at Mankato State University from its establishment in 1972 to the close of the 1981-82 school year. This study provided histori­cal data to document the development and progress of the program through a combination of sources including The Children's House files, University records, personal files and recollections of the writer, and personal in­terviews with key persons in the history of the program. The study pro­vided data and descriptions in regard to program philosophy, design and curriculum, funding, staffing and facilities. A review of the literature provided an overview of the development of day care and early childhood education in the United States.
