They had asked you to set up the program four years ago. Now the community center director feels he needs your space for additional adult activities during the day. You need to move out of the building in 30 days. What will you do? Consider all the options, and then make a plan.

a. Consider children, families, and staff as you make your decision.

b. If you decide to move, consider what you will do to avoid this type of occurrence in the future.

5. Examine Director’s Resource 7-1. Discuss with members of your class the ways in which development of this program’s facility might be affected by its philosophy and belief statement.
