CAROLYN WYLIE CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER | Riverside, CA

 

The Carolyn Wylie Child Development Center is designed to stimulate the creativity and curiosity of young children, in a space of abundant natural light. This modestly-budgeted facility was designed in close collaboration with the modular manufacturer; customized finishes and cabinetry for a child-friendly environment are evidenced throughout. The building houses two preschool classrooms and a third shared space for multiple activities. Each classroom has a ‘learning wall’ to display student work / toys and books, or to store classroom materials. Child-height windows are positioned in the classrooms to allow students a view outdoors. The playground, too, is designed to spark curiosity. Trails curve throughout the play area, leading the students to a camp-site, a water fountain, and areas planted with drought-tolerant, native vegetation.
