“This cost-effective addition not only brings the district a facility custom-designed to the needs of three- to five-year-olds, but it also allows us to bring the community full-day kindergarten at each of our seven elementary schools.”

“Since the new design with each classroom having a bathroom and connected therapy room, we gained back 20 to 25 minutes of instructional time each day.”

The Way to Play

The design team focused on bringing more play into the instructional day.

“In this case, play doesn’t just mean trucks and blocks, but exploring and discovery at a higher level. The design responds to the academic and social/emotional levels of early learners.”

“Since opening the building, we’re seeing fewer students with special education needs entering kindergarten, and we’re seeing students who are exiting special education services altogether.”
