Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Learn-as-y ou-go program Youngsters get headstart in Claresholm district Wednesday, October 3, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 By PAUL ANDERSEN Herald News Service CLARESHOLM The Early Childhood Services program is well under way here vtrith four teachers giving tinty tots a little advance education and a little headstart in life. Teachers involved in the Willow Creek school division program are Marilyn Baldwin, a Claresholm elementary school teacher who travels to Granum to teach the Early Childhood program at the Alex MacGregor Elementary School half a day, five days a week; Diane Renter of Fort Macleod; Barbara Dakin of Claresholm; and Cheryl Morrison, teaching half-time each at Nanton and Stavely schools. Miss Baldwin has about 15 pupils but no program of studies. It's a kind of learn-as- yo.j-go program. There are about 132 children aged five getting classroom instruction in five towns in the division. Some classes are held in the morning and others in the afternoon. About half a day of school is all the little kids can take. The board has to provide special school bus transportation at noon because of the half-day schedule. Education Minister Lou Hyndman hopes to relax regulations to allow parents to set up car pools. Superintendent Dr. Alan MacLeod says car pools must be provided or rural youngsters won't make it to the classrooms. Claresholm is the only town in the divi- sion with a local advisory board for the Early Childhood Services program. Other towns have the advisory boards to iron out problems encountered when teaching tiny lots Granum principal Les Shimp is a member of the Granum advisory board, now busy formulating objectives for the program. Members are the local trustee and parents. Miss Baldwin says the kids are eager to learn and she sees a good future for the program.
