The first portion of this paper is developed to provide research-based information about the early childhood education of children. Included in this research, is information about poverty levels, zeroed into Kalamazoo, and programs that are in use currently for parents and children to take advantage of to better their lives. By providing background information of deprived children, it will help aid in the understanding of the second portion of this paper.
Secondly, is a prescriptive model for the education of students throughout the summer months. It explicitly outlines a model for a program set up to aid parents, children and the community at large. It is set up as a model that if established correctly will be continued in the future without needing future networking since this will have done by the founders.
Lastly, this research-based proscriptive model will provide through instruction, enable your children to develop sound morals and dispositions toward the challenges of life. It is a working paper, changing as more research is exposed and more contacts are made, but it offers a plethora of information that is research-based.
