Deferred Opportunity Education is a challenging opportunity by a small, day college in southeast Pennsylvania (OUR LADY OF ANGELS COLLEGE) to attempt to reach out to the adult women of the local community. The program permits any woman to return to college on a class schedule which has been tailored to her needs in terms of class hours, credits, length of time, etc. For women who still have young children (3-6 years), a large, educationally oriented Child Development Center has been built. It has its own professional staff and a full program is offered for children of women attending college. A special counselor who is conversant with the needs of adult mothers and working women is also an integral part of the program. Through consultation and guidance these women are able to maintain satisfactory accommodation toward the dual goal of wife and mother. (Author)
