The McClarty Center for Fine & Performing Arts has been on the planning books since 1975. It will provide higher education opportunities for local artists and serve the greater Reedley area. This venue will be used for educational programs, live productions, and campus and community events. Plans include an auditorium with 525 estimated seats, an art gallery, lobby, concessions, a green room, meeting spaces, and a box office.
The Child Development Program at Reedley College offers an associate degree, several certificate programs, and transfer options. The program addresses the certificate, licensing, and training requirements needed for a person to enter a number of occupations in early childhood education and child care. The job opportunities in and throughout the San Joaquin Valley are very good and the demand for the program is high. The current temporary portable buildings consisting of approximately 4,099 assignable square feet are not adequate. Based upon the program requirements and demand, the new facility will accommodate 12 infants, 24 toddlers, and 48 preschool children.
