Child Care Facilities Fund Resources Updated

We have updated our resource guides, a “how-to” series to assist organizations that are planning to renovate, construct or improve their facilities:
Volume 1 on Child Care Center Facilities Development & Financing identifies all of the steps in the real estate development and financing process, and helps child care providers and their development partners overcome the hurdles that every project faces.
Volume 2 on Child Care Center Design highlights the important connection between well-designed space and high quality programming, and helps child care providers and their architects plan an effective space for young children.
Volume 3 on Child Care Center Equipment & Furnishings will help child care providers and others select and arrange classroom furniture and equipment to create a child-safe and child-friendly, functional and attractive learning environment.
Volume 4 on Child Care Center Playgrounds will help with the planning of a child care center’s outdoor space to achieve a successful environment for young children. It suggests equipment and materials that support a range of activities that children can enjoy outdoors.
Greening Early Childhood Centers helps organizations understand best practices in green design, specifically for children’s environments. It includes information on simple changes that centers can make today.
Creating Quality School-Age Child Care Space reflects best practices in the design and improvement of after-school environments for children from kindergarten through eighth grade.
We even have a new guide available on Playground Design Interventions, which features low-cost, high-value design interventions for child care and early learning center outdoor play spaces.
