Green Child Development Centers

Child Development Centers
Child Development Center, L.A. Southwest College

Reflecting its commitment to sustainability, the District’s Child Development Centers are green. The centers are designed to meet LEED standards to create an eco-friendly environment for children to learn and play, and students train for careers. Seven of the District's nine campuses have new child-care facilities either completed, under construction or in development. These centers can accommodate more than 700 children, and include green features such as:

  • Classrooms with carbon dioxide sensors to adjust outside air intake on poor air quality days.
  • Drip irrigation, waterless urinals and water control valves that limit water consumption.
  • Low VOC (volatile organic compound) paints and sealants that reduce indoor air pollution.
  • Recycled materials are used in products such as carpeting, back splashes, counter-tops and outdoor safety surfacing.
