Abstract

The psychometric scores of black South African children (N=248) in 16 day-care centers were assessed before (n=119) and after (n=129) the introduction of an enrichment package, which consisted of a range of educational tops and cost US $12 per child. Analysis indicated that the enrichment was associated with significant improvements on a number of psychometric measures. Results are critically examined in terms of methodological issues, the effects of a low-cost enrichment scheme, and aspects of the package which merited subsequent improvement.
