Kindergartens Needed To Help Disadvantaged By MRS. ED LUNN . Special Correspondent PINCHER CREEK - "Equality in educational opportunity" is stressed By Peter Cresswell, Najpi Friendship director. Where, minority groups; exist the .disadvantaged child suffers most after he starts school. His experience of living ill-prepares Mm for the demands of the typical school. Shaped by the environment which has, in his own' eyes, stamped him indelibly, as a person of little worth, he now must be able to conform in a situation which places primary emphasis on verbal skills, Mr. Cresswell said recently at a Napi meeting.  The key to academic success for the minority group child is verbal fluency and he should possess that skill before tackling school problems, Mr. Cresswell said. A second factor, no less important than verbal fluency, is the child's image of himself. This often can be harmfully af- fected by family attitudes and early school experiences. The failure to communicate begins to exert its harmful effects on achievement and on the child's image of himself from the- first day at school. The extension of pre-school services seems to be the answer. Play schools and kindergartens may provide for the deficiency in achievement that schools have not overcome in verbal and non-verbal skills, said the Napi director.
