(Written by Tiffani Patterson) I am the Human Resource Director for Gate City Day Nursery Association which is a 107 year old nonprofit early childhood education program with two of its three centers located in the Cascade Patch's area.
The program started out of Atlanta University, (now Clark Atlanta), by Dr. Gertrude Ware and Dr. W.E.B. Dubois. Our mission is to offer a high quality, early childhood education program to the city's most economically and academically vulnerable children.
Unlike for profit daycare centers, our program is nationally accredited, state licensed and award winning. We have been funded by the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta since the early 1930s (when it was still the Community Chest) and we have had a long affiliation with the city's best and brightest scholars, politicians, clergy men and women and community partners.
This summer, our program has been awarded a grant from the state of Georgia Bright from the Start Pre-K program to offer a six week academic intensive summer camp for rising kindergarteners in the community. The program is free and offers free transportation in a limited area. There are certain restrictions to eligibility.
I have attached a flyer regarding the details of the program.
