Photograph caption dated September 16, 1963 reads "Child care centers designed to take care of children for working parents provide a busy schedule for their charges. Children at new Toluca Lake center add a little imagination to their activities. At left above, Carla McBeath, 2, North Hollywood, whips up a little snack with toy dishes on Carla-sized stove. However, she finds kitchen utensils can be used for other purposes other than food preparation. In center photo, she shows some ingenuity and uses her play dish drainer for a chapeau. At right, her 3-year-old twin sisters (pictured), Kelly and Robin, keep occupied with modeling clay. Below left, Mrs. Ruth Ellis, who is in charge of the center, explains program, while at right, Supermouse Ronnie Bassett, 4, North Hollywood, gets ready for a take-off over his friend's tricycle."; See images #00144399 through #00144403 for all photos in this series.
