Addressing Center Size: A Village of Interconnected Houses for Very Large Centers

Web Abstract: 
Examines the size of child care centers as a factor in designing developmentally appropriate facilities. Proposes as a general principle that, whenever a center is to house more than 75 children, it should be partially decentralized into a village, campus, or articulated series of interconnected houses, with each module serving no more than 60 to 75 children.
