Demonstration Nursery Center for Infants and Toddlers, Greensboro, North Carolina: A Model Day Care Center for Children Under 3 Years Old. Model Programs--Childhood Education.
American Institutes for Research in the Behavioral Sciences, Palo Alto, CA.
The Demonstration Nursery Center for Infants and Toddlers was established in 1967 to create a quality day care program that could be replicated elsewhere, to define the components of quality care for infants and to help the State of North Carolina develop standards for infant care. The Center models itself on a well-functioning home environment and no attempt is made to accelerate cognitive or motor development; but the staff members strive to provide a warm, healthy, and stimulating environment for each of the 30 children in the program, ranging in age from 2 1/2 months to 3 years. Sources of more detailed information are provided for this program, specifically, and for Model Programs Childhood Education, in general. (Author/WY)
