ACEF Webinar – Overview of Early Childhood Facilities Finance

Loris Malaguzzi, the founder of the celebrated preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, referred to the classroom as “the third teacher” to make the point that children learn by interacting, not only with parents, teachers and peers, but also by interacting with their physical environment. Facilities housing early learning programs are an intrinsic dimension of achieving quality in early education. But they differ from conventional school environments both in how they are designed and how they are typically financed.

This webinar will highlight the ways that the physical environment impacts programmatic quality and proceeds to explain how quality facilities get planned and financed. The presentation is designed to provide a broad introduction to the physical planning process as well as providing a comprehensive overview of both the cost drivers and financing strategies that can be employed to achieve feasibility.
