Summary

The Amalgamated Day Care Center is an independent trust established through a collective bargaining agreement between the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, AFL-CIO, and the employers of the garment industry. The free center, open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., is located near the Chicago garment industries to minimize transportation problems for parents. No attempt is made to determine family income and the sole criterion for admittance is union membership. The center places primary emphasis on intellectual and language development to prepare its students to enter public schools. It also seeks to develop self-reliance, a strong self-image, and inner controls, and emphasizes the presentation of positive ethnic models and attitudes for the Black, Chicano, Puerto Rican, and Anglo children. The free health program is supplemented by a nutrition program of breakfast, hot lunch and snacks. The 60 children are divided into four classrooms with one teacher and one assistant teacher serving each group. Information is provided on policy making, center and staff organization, use of resources, parent, teacher, and observer comments. An appendix includes a daily classroom schedule, sample menu, child progress report and a union pamphlet. (AJ)
