Our Initiatives

Publications

To complement its training and technical assistance activities, LISC has developed a series of "how-to" resource guides covering early learning facility planning and development, quality design features, funding sources, outdoor playgrounds, classroom furnishings, green strategies and other topics. LISC also produces best practices papers and policy briefs on all aspects of early childhood facilities design and development.
