The Barrett Daycare Center continues to operate at 410 Ridge Street in Charlottesville. The Board of Directors is made up of citizens from all areas of the community who have an interest in pre-school children and demonstrate leadership qualities. Today, this board determines the policies of the Nursery and supervises its finances. As of 1989, the day care has operated solely on donations and tuition fees. Recent fund drives have proven successful, raising enough money to refurbish the seventy-two year old building that houses the daycare. The daycare continues to operate, thanks to the support of Charlottesville-area businesses and individuals.
