The Design Guidelines present standards and best practices unique to early childhood education (ECE) and out-of-school time (OST) facilities. The guide was created to be a resource for organizations applying to the Early Education and Out of School Time Capital Fund (EEOST), however the information is useful for all ECE and OST facilities in Massachusetts. Children’s Investment Fund worked closely with the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care on the creation of guidelines.
