Scope and Content

This collection consists of the office records, 1969-1991, of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Child Day Care Centers, one of the first day care facilities in the area. After several years of planning, the center opened in May 1971 at Asbury United Methodist Church in Harrisonburg, as a community effort to address a widely recognized community need. It was supported at first by donations from local organizations, then by United Way and federal funds, and operated centers in several localities. Parents were charged for day care according to their income. A Board of Directors, composed of members of the community, gave guidance in policy making and fund raising. By 1991, approximately 70 children were being cared for. A detailed history is included in the collection.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged categorically and chronologically in two Hollinger boxes.
