Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE U7HBHIUGE HERALD Caobcr A, 1972 action-singing time with Jeanne Benson Pati Wigefsworth solves knolty problem Dresing the weather man Co-operation helps a building for the future... pORTY-SEVEN students are enrolled In the Leth- bridge Preschool Services Project this year, with two more expected to start in the near fuure. Basically, the program aims at providing special- ized education for children who will be starting Grade 1 in the next year or two, and who lack the kind of learning experiences important to success in school. This lack can be attributed to many social and economic causes, including the cultural differences of children from varying ethnic backgrounds. Without this type of program, such students, no matter how capable and intelligent, will have diffi- culty competing with other Grade 1 students, accord- ing to city educators. Children presently attending the project's kinder- garten classes are taught by Pati Wigelsworth, as- sisted by two teacher aides. Miss Wigelsworth, a spe- cialist in early childhood education, is also co-ordi- nator of the program. The program is available for all preschool chil- dren who are eligible, including handicapped children. This year, for the first time, the project is in- volving parents. Some will begin helping in the class- room this month, and others will he building much- needed conveniences. Parents have also organized a car pool. The project is jointly financed by the province and the City of Lethbridge Preventive Social Sendees de- partment. It operates out of Galbraith School. Future plans call for the opening of a similar classroom in some other area ot the city where there is need for this type of facility.
