The teaching of child care workers has prompted technical colleges to integrate their training with an on-campus child development facility. This project describes a collaborative process where the architect and user group exchange their different areas of expertise to the facility development process. Beginning with a goal setting process, the staff members and the architect embarked on a series of iterative stages that included children's classroom flow patterns, activity relationships, and activity requirements. Specific gaming techniques were developed to permit a dialogue between all project participants throughout the facility development process.
