The Book
''The design of Childcare centers is a quality of life issue for both children and staff and yet the manifest and latent effects of these environments is largely unknown. It is critical for architects, landscape architects, and designers to proceed more thoughtfully, poetically, and knowledgeably to design the environments in which so many infants and children live each day.''
