State Center Community College District (SCCCD) is proposing to construct a: new Child Development Center on the campus of Reedley College to upgrade its existing Child Development facilities and provide expanded Child Development educational opportunities to students at Reedley College. The project is planned to include a Child Development Lab School for 100 children, instructional offices, faculty offices, and meeting rooms.
As part of the project, the college's existing Child Development facilities, which are located in three portable buildings totaling approximately 4,099 square feet, will be removed. The new Child Development Center building, a single-story structure with an area of 18,472 gross square feet (12,700 assignable square feet), will be located at the same site and will result in a net increase of 8,601 assignable square feet from the existing Child Development Center facilities. The total building square footage on the Reedley College campus is approximately 425,000 square feet within a developed campus area of approximately 100 acres. Thus, the new building represents a minor increase in campus square footage.
Construction of the new Child Development Center building is expected to begin in early 2020 and the building would be completed and operational by August 2021.
