Childcare Centers New York City 1988-2009
CLA is specialized in the design of childcare centers.

New York City centers are closely regulated and the caregivers highly trained. Having designed centers all over the city, CLA has the knowledge to help groups new to child care and those with great experience to build and furnish new facilities.

For instance, in 2004 CLA completed a four classroom center for the Citizens’ Advice Bureau in the Bronx. This center is part of a larger youth and social service center. Separating the childcare function from the other uses while maintaining an overall sense of community distinguishes this project.

In 2003 CLA completed an expansion of the child care center at Brooklyn College which also serves to teach child care as part of the academic program.

One of CLA’s earliest centers is the Chung Pak Childcare Center in Chinatown built in 1992. It is part of a mixed use building that includes retail, low income elderly housing and social service. CLA was part of the original development team for this project and included childcare from the outset.
