Since 1942, the Child Development Laboratory (CDL) at the Urbana campus has provided a setting for quality care, valuable teaching experiences for both graduates and undergraduates, and important research. A number of studies conducted over the past two decades repeatedly indicated a need for additional child care for Urbana campus employees and students. Recently, a feasibility study was developed by an architect/engineer firm to develop a preliminary scheme and cost estimate for this $4 million project. The project will be located in close proximity to the existing Child Development Lab and will provide approximately 18,600 gsf of additional facility to serve 96 children ages six weeks through three years old. The building will include classrooms, teacher offices, observation rooms, a research room, kitchen, laundry and a multipurpose/gross motor room. Playground space will also be developed for this facility.
