Barnard Center for the Study of Child Development
The reimagining of Barnard College’s Center for the Study of Child Development (CSCD) co-locates research and collaboration, strengthens the Center’s ongoing mission to study the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional development of young children, and supports caregivers and the next generation of researchers.
The CSCD’s new, more accessible 5,000 SF home integrates spaces for the Center for Toddler Development (Toddler Center), Cognitive Development Center, and Language Acquisition and Development Research Laboratory to strengthen relationships within the Psychology Department, support research efficiency, and foster connections to the larger academic community.
With a wide variety of uses, from toddler play to academic research and teaching, the new space was designed to be flexible, welcoming, and healthy. The Toddler Center is a living laboratory for pre-school-aged children and researchers alike.
