Photograph caption dated June 19, 1965 reads "Proud fathers visit their children during Dad's Day at Sepulveda Methodist Nursery School, 15434 Rayen St. Brush painting is shared by Linda Griffiths, 4, left photo, and Don Griffiths of Van Nuys. Heather McIlreath, 4, center photo, is a little shy of the turtle shown to her by her father, Fred McIlreath, Sepulveda. Dick Hauer, Granada Hills, last photo, learns of woodwork part of school curriculum from Deanna, 4. The school's philosophy is to provide learning and growing experiences in a month-by-month program. Children perform at their own level." The article partially reads "It was the make-believe world of the 3- to 5-year-olds at Sepulveda Nursery School, 15434 Rayen St. And for the first time the children's fathers were allowed to enter this special world during Dad's Day held in honor of Father's Day. No mothers were permitted on the school grounds that day."; See images #00132124 through #00132130 for all photos in this series.
