"CICK Early Childhood Facilities Resource Guides: A Step-By-Step Set of Workbooks"

In 2005, LISC’s Community Investment Collaborative for Kids program (CICK) published a series of four resource guides to help local practitioners through the process of opening and operating early childhood facilities in the community.

  • “CICK Resource Guide - Volume 1: Developing Early Childhood Facilities” identifies all of the steps in the real estate development and financing process, and helps early childhood providers and their partners carry out feasibility and planning activities, assemble an appropriate project development team, select and acquire a site, raise money and complete construction.
  • “CICK Resource Guide - Volume 2: Designing Early Childhood Facilities” highlights the connection between well-designed space and high quality programming, and helps early childhood providers, community developers and architects plan effective spaces for young children. It includes an overview of design principles, a tour through a center’s functional areas, and information on materials, lighting, security, urban settings and accessibility.
