A Study in Child Care (Case Study from Volume II-A): "Good Vibes." Day Care Programs Reprint Series.
The Haight-Ashbury Children's Center described in this booklet has these important aspects: (1) It is a community center, offering day care for children 2 1/2 to 6 years of age and community services for parents; (2) Its curriculum uses a modification of the British Infant School system; and (3) Parents are an integral part of the planning and financing of the center. Families served by the center are primarily low income, from a variety of ethnic groups. The program includes a social worker and parent-community worker, when funds permit. Center meetings provide a forum for discussion of plans for the day care center and specific community issues. Information on the center's history, funding, program, staff organization and training, and use of resources is included. An appendix presents the Parents' Participation Share Plan and other material. (NH)
