Read Up on How to Design an Early Childhood Facility

4/4/2007:   The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) has published a how-to guide for organizations planning to renovate, construct, or improve their early childhood facilities.

Developed under LISC's national child care program, Community Investment for Collaborative for Kids (CICK), the guide highlights the connection between well-designed space and quality child care programming. Designing Early Childhood Facilities helps providers, their development partners, and their architects create an effective space for children. In addition to providing an overview of design principles, the guide also gives information on appropriate materials, lighting, security, urban settings, and accessibility.
