Creating A New Child Development Center
The new Fort Valley State University (FVSU) Family & Child Development Center house program activities for the Cooperative Extension Program and the Academic Program of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, both part of the College of Agriculture, Home Economics, and Applied Programs.
Three Building Components
This building is comprised of three specific components; the Cooperative Extension Program (Conference Center), the Child Development Center, and the Home Management Residence, each with its own separate entrance.
A Welcoming Aesthetic
The largest, most prominent entrance welcomes the public into the conference center and is located just off the main parking area. The main north-facing entrance opens into a two-story open entrance hall that allows lots of natural light to fill the space and serves as a beacon to visitors during the day or at night.
