“Child Care Facilities: Quality By Design”

Inadequate or poorly designed space for child care isn’t simply unattractive or inconvenient. It can reduce the effectiveness of a child care program, even when other factors are first-rate. 

This report highlights research conducted at a Connecticut early childhood center that demonstrates how a well-designed facility can result in more frequent teacher-child interactions, more productive child-initiated play, higher staff morale and lower staff turnover - all essential factors in program quality.

The paper also offers examples of successful efforts to create high quality child care facilities in communities supported by LISC around the country.
