Sometime in the 1980s, and it was applauded at first. They occupied the major portion of a ground floor in one of the buildings at HQ complex. They also built a playground outside with mini swings, see-saws, etc. The day care seemed to want to show it was as "progressive" as our agency. One PC example was to show the kids the experiences of others of the opposite sex. To that end, they put on skits. One day a man left early to take his son to a MD appt. At the day care center, he saw is son wearing a dress. He went nuts. He made the good point that society condemns absentee fathers for not providing guidance for their children, especially the male offspring. He said that although he's not the primary custodian, he goes above-and-beyond in teaching his little one as to how a man is expected to behave, and then he sees him sashaying around in a dress. The day care's practices in being "progressive" ceased and was replaced by the more traditional ways of day care.
