The First Avenue After-School Day Care Center: A Program for Low Income Families in New York City.
This paper provides a very brief overview of an after-school day care center in New York City which cares for a maximum of 65 immigrant children 6 through 12 years of age. The population served consists of families from Hong Kong, China, Latin America, India, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, Korea and Nigeria. As most families served know little English, multilingual staff members work closely with bilingual children. In addition to snacks and many activities, the center provides homework assistance during the school year through daily tutorial periods. The center also assists parents in their contacts with teachers and school bureaucracies. (Author/RH)
