Nurturing space: The ecology of early childhood facilities


Nurturing Space is a new addition to the Network’s on-going series of reports: Making Space: Leading Perspectives on Child Care Facilities. This series of reports describe the emerging elements in the field’s place-conscious approach for strengthening families and supporting healthy early childhood development in low-income communities. This white paper introduces an additional rationale for facility investments; one rooted in ecology and foregrounding the evidence that links a center’s built and natural environment with program quality and child outcomes.
