Child’s play (area)

Ground was broken March 19 for the McPhaul Child Development Lab Amphitheater and Hillslide play area. Children who attend the center turned the first shovels of dirt with help from (back row from left) Jay Mancini, head of the child and family development department; Linda Fox, dean of the College of Family and Consumer Sciences; and Amy Kay, director of the Child Development Lab. This new area, designed by UGA alumnus and CDL dad Josh Koons provides a more natural play area than is frequently found at child care centers. When finished, the new area will include two slides built into the naturally occurring hill.
