DESCRIPTION:  The existing 25 year old Early Childhood Center is economically re-purposed and entirely transformed through this renovation and addition project.  A warm, daylight filled atmosphere is created by open views to the surrounding prairie and woodlands landscape.  Abundant interior windows connect classrooms to shared public spaces, and a muted color pallette empasizes natural materials.  The new facility offers additional classrooms and expanded campus and community partnerships.
