I am writing concerning the Sept. 25 editorial on day care ("Irvine's Day-Care Lead Should Be Followed"). Assistance League of Santa Ana, a nonprofit philanthropic organization, has already taken the fast track in providing quality day care.
For the past seven years we have operated a modern, well-staffed child day-care center just two blocks from the county Civic Center in Santa Ana. Seventy-two children are currently enrolled in the center, and we will be able to provide for 32 more children when an addition to the center is completed in March, 1989.
I suggest that government entities investigate what the private sector can and is providing before jumping into the day-care business.
Our award-winning day-care center is an excellent example of what can be done to solve this pressing community need. (We are located in Santa Ana at 1002 W. 2nd St.)
