Preschool Connects Students With Nature
KSA has been retained to design a preschool for 150 students, ages 3 - 5. The new school is located in a park setting adjacent to ADA University and will be associated with the university's School of Education. Located on a steeply sloped wooded site, the new preschool is organized around an exterior courtyard and designed to be a part of the landscape. Each classroom, gymnasium and dining area has direct access to the out-of-doors, ensuring young students the opportunity to experience and learn from nature. The program is approximately 5000 SM and includes the following program spaces: 10 general classrooms; music, art, and science classrooms; gymnasium, dining area, administrative offices, and a sleeping loft.
