ABSTRACT
This article discusses the significance of research conducted concerning kindergarten in the U.S. Research has helped the kindergarten find a definite place for itself in the American system of education, helped in alerting the public to the development needs of young children, helped teachers in evaluating their own procedures and helped administrators and policy-directing groups to plan for the welfare of five-year-olds. Research workers have actually went into kindergartens that brought helpful and illuminating facts to the attention of kindergarten teachers, parents, and all others concerned with the education and welfare of five-year-olds. Later studies shows that there is a resurgence of vigor and growth in the kindergarten movement. this field appears to be concerned chiefly with the evaluation of policies, practices, and procedures.
