MCLAREN CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER, SFUSD
This new modular campus for the John McLaren Child Development Center (CDC) incorporated two basic modules that created an 11,000 sq. ft. campus featuring six classrooms, a multipurpose room with warming kitchen, a performance space, and an administrative building. The siting of the modular’s created a central play yard that was scaled for a child’s use and is easily supervised. The curved seat ramp subtly divides the two age groups. Building the modular campus on an adjacent abandoned site permitted the ongoing operation of the current center, with minimal disruption for a program that is in operation year round. The new campus is a positive asset to the neighborhood by removing blighted and abandoned bungalows and providing a modern, accessible preschool and after school center.
