Ground broken for district preschool in Englewood

Posted

A new preschool building at 700 W. Mansfield Ave. will replace the existing Maddox Early Child Education Center, with students expected to occupy the new building in January 2019. Groundbreaking for the project brought Englewood Schools and city officials together to celebrate Dec. 6. Work will continue through December 2018.

The new building will be “entirely focused on these little guys and what they need,” representatives from RB+B Architects recently said to the district’s board of education. It features high ceilings and a lot of daylight, but perhaps the biggest standouts in the plan are the indoor playground spaces.

Those multipurpose spaces, as they’re called, will have jungle gym-style playground equipment, a tricycle track and carpeted floors. The board and other district officials have been excited about the possibility of the new building boosting enrollment numbers and attracting more young families to the district.
