Bibliography on Children and the Physical Environment: Child Care Centers, Outdoor Play Environments, and Other Children's Environments.
Moore, Gary T.; And Others
A comprehensive and systematic search was conducted for all literature pertaining to the planning and design of children's indoor and outdoor facilities. Emphasis was placed on compiling a list of empirical and professional literature on child care facilities and outdoor play environments dealing with the following issues: (1) the role of the physical environment in child development and in overcoming developmental disabilities; (2) child care workers and family child care homes; (3) outdoor playgrounds of various types, including adventure playgrounds and comprehensive playgrounds; and (4) the role of the overall housing and neighborhood environment in children's play and development. Additional information on children's environments included children's hospitals, recreation centers, elementary and secondary schools, libraries, housing, zoos, science museums, and designing for handicapped children. Over 1500 items--books, reports, and articles--are included in this bibliography. (Author/RH)
