Summary

The Georgetown Day Care Center, in Washington, D.C., is dually sponsored by a large hospital and a private non-profit organization and offers day care services to a small number of the children of parents who work at the hospital. The center also functions as a halfway house for children in a diagnostic center which identifies preschool children with observable or potential handicaps. The day care program allows these children to be gradually introduced into a normal preschool setting, while they are being worked with and observed. The primary emphasis of the program is the child's social and emotional development, but some pre-reading and pre-kindergarten math materials are used. A unique combination of use of private and public resources is demonstrated in this center, for the hospital provides physical facilities, health care, and food services; the private organization raises funds for teachers' salaries and supplies, and provides volunteer help in the classroom; and the parents pay on a sliding scale based on income. Parents meet regularly and are represented on the advisory committees. Appendixes include samples of parent and volunteer involvement materials. (NH)
