Sec. 7809. Child-care centers

-STATUTE-

(a)(1) The Secretary, through the Service, shall provide for the

operation of child-care centers at Department facilities in

accordance with this section. The operation of such centers shall

be carried out to the extent that the Secretary determines, based

on the demand for the care involved, that such operation is in the

best interest of the Department and that is practicable to do so.

The centers shall be available for the children of Department

employees and, to the extent space is available, the children of

other employees of the Federal Government and the children of

employees of affiliated schools and corporations created under

for all matters relating to the provision of child-care services

to provide for the operating expenses of the center, including the

expenses of personnel assigned to the center. In the case of a

center operated by a contractor which is a for-profit entity, the

charges shall be established by taking into consideration the value

of the space and services furnished with respect to the center

under subsection (c)(1) of this section.

(c) In connection with the establishment and operation of any

child-care center under this section, the Secretary -

(1) shall furnish, at no cost to the center, space in existing

Department facilities and utilities, custodial services, and

other services and amenities necessary (as determined by the

Secretary) for the health and safety of the children provided

care at the center;

clause (1) of this subsection for use as the child-care center

telephone service, except that the Secretary may furnish basic

telephone service and surplus furniture and equipment without

reimbursement;

(3) shall provide for the participation (directly or through a

parent advisory committee) of parents of children receiving care
