June 11, 1990| From Times Wire Services

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Lotus Development Corp. today announced the official opening of its Children's Center, an on-site day-care facility for children of its Cambridge-based employees.

The center, which opened with 13 children, will ultimately accommodate 72 children, from 3 months to 5 years of age. It is located on the first floor of Lotus' new developers' building, across from corporate headquarters in Cambridge.

Features of the center include a sliding fee scale, so any employee whose child is selected to be in the center (selection is by lottery) will be able to use the facility; a commitment to a diverse student body and staff; a "get-well room" for children enrolled in the center who are recovering from mild illnesses, and the use of cloth diapers, for ecological reasons.

"With this facility, Lotus is providing some of the best child care available to working parents anywhere in this country," said Mike Balloch, vice president, Corporate Services.
