Summary

The Casper Day Care Center in Casper, Wyoming, consists of two day care centers, located in churches, serves 91 children including physically or mentally handicapped children (toddlers and school age) of working mothers in low-income families. The program is designed to facilitate the association of handicapped children with normal children (one disturbed child/five normal children). The professional staff is heavily dependent on 26 volunteers. Activities are generally the same for all children except for speech therapy and special attention at mealtime. The program integrates educational and social-emotional development, language development, "Sesame Street" viewing, sensorimotor and perceptual development, math and reading tutoring for school age children. Nutrition and health programs and social services are provided. Funding has developed into a major problem and the center is dependent on donated labor, facilities and services. Parent involvement is minimal. Information is provided on center organization, resource uses, admission policies, menus and program purpose. (AJ)
