JAMES LICK CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

INFO

PROJECT INFORMATION

CLIENT: East Side Union High School District
LOCATION: San Jose, California
SIZE: 5,860 Square Feet
COST: $2,800,000

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

East Side Union High School District's Child Development Program ambitiously offers year-round subsidized childcare for the children of faculty, students, and the community. But it was becoming increasingly difficult to provide high-quality services at the existing outdated childcare facility at James Lick High School. The district wanted a new facility at the edge of the existing high school campus, but designed to have it's own identity and be separated from the functions of the high school.

CAW oriented the new building to have a public entrance onto a major street and away from the high school campus. Play areas were located behind the building, away from the busy street. Interior learning and play spaces were organized to be open to the outdoor play areas, and large doors allow space to flow freely from inside to outside while providing a protective and insulated environment for the children. This new state-of-the-art, state-licensed childcare facility can accommodate up to forty children.

HOW CAW DID THIS

  • Site layout and orientation creates a new drop-off area and parking lot that is separate from the high school.
  • The new building's design creates a fun, child-scaled environment with bright primary colors and protected play areas directly adjacent to inside classrooms.
  • A multi-purpose room is designed with a separate entrance so it can be used as an after-hours community room.
  • A nursery provides a place to care for infants away from the older children.
