These standards have been made on 265 nursery school children from 2 to 5 years of age. Twenty-nine tables are given of the standing height, weight, weight-height index, stem length, recumbent length, stem-stature index, mental level by the Stanford Revision Test, Merrill-Palmer scale and the Goodenough drawing test, Monroe scale, activity, food intake, lunch time, sleep and cause of absence.
