And, considering the city's first' subsidized day care centre is still in its infancy, daily routine is running smoothly. The centre opened for business Oct. 1 in the Bridge Villa Estates' com- munity recreation centre: Director Roma Christopher says the residents of the trailer court have 'been positive in their reaction toward the day care centre and have not let their dispute with owner Ray Chambers, about the rental of their recreation centre, carry over to the children attending the centre. Two new children registered in the centre this week and four more are ex- pected, bringing the total attendance to 14, next week. Youngsters are dropped off at the centre by their parents as early as 7 a.m.; some stay as late as 6 p.m. Miss Christopher and two child AFTERNOON BINGO "EHff MOOS! 3rd Ave. North 9 Monn DOUIUD WMkly Cards Sponsored by The Moose Lodge No Children Under 1S AHomd to Wateoma LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE 1234-3rd Ave. North RIQULAR WED.

The centre is located in more than square feet of space in the Bridge Villa recreation a bright play and sleeping area as well as ample kitchen and bathroom facilities. The centre's back windows face onto a large grassy play area, soon to be fenced for the children's safety. "The whole idea is to make the children feel as comfor- table as possible in the centre, but to keep them active and so they look forward to coming here each says "Miss Christopher who has her i bachelor, of education degree from the University of Calgary and several years ex- perience at a child care centre .in that city. From initial appearances, she seems to. have succeeded in doing just that. She and the two assistants obviously enjoy children's company and relate easily to them. The at- mosphere in the centre is relaxed and cheerful; the children seem happy in their surroundings. Miss Christopher emphasizes that the time spent on "structured work" does not consist of rigid lessons, but merely acquaints the youngsters with concepts, numbers and the alphabet. Children are served mid- morning and afternoon snacks as well as a hot lunch. One day this week, the menu consisted of Spanish rice, meatballs, green beans, milk and ice cream. Miss Christopher plans to take the children on regular excursions and to have members of the community visit the centre as special guests, to teach a simple craft or to entertain the youngsters. "We hope our parent organization will become ac- tively involved in helping with centre she .says. She is pleased that one of the trailer court residents who has no children in the facility has donated the use of her television set until the centre can purchase its own, so the' children are able to watch Sesame Street.
