A pioneer in the study of child development and day care, Blatz 's work has influenced other specialists throughout the English-speaking world. In this biography Jocelyn Motyer Raymond considers the man and his work. In 1925 Blatz established St. George's School for Child Study, associated with the University of Torotno. The school consisted of two divisions; one was Parent Education, a research program created to educate pasrents in the newest techniques of child-rearing. But by far the more famous division was the model nursery school. It served as a laboratory for the developmentof Blatz's child study theories, and was so successful that demand for enr olment quickly became overwhelming. As his reputation grew he was asked to work with the Dionne quintuplets, which brought his name to a much wider audience, and to organize wartime day nurseries for factory workers in Canadaand Britain. From the St. George's School grew the Institute for Child Stu dy, still flourishing today." - from the dustjacket.
