Early Elementary programs

Fellow Subscribers 
A teacher called me this morning at Michigan Gateways (the Television Program for Teachers of Math and Science), looking for leads on "a new, strong math program to adopt" for K2. He told me that there is quite a bit of "divisiveness" in his district now over what to adopt, and he would like to know, "What are some of the best things out there?"
Since the Michigan Gateways series of programs frequently turns to the NCTM standards as a point of reference as we examine math and science reform, we can assume that he leans toward the NCTMoriented side of the division (simplifyingas we are all well aware at the moment, there are many sides and no clear dividing lines). It was my impression that he was looking for a program that he could make the best case for. Do you have any suggestions that I could pass on to him as programs that he may wish to investigate?
I do have sources here at Michigan State University that I have put this same question to, but I am also very interested in suggestions from the NCTML subscribers.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
