New Prague District ECFE

New Prague Area Schools

Wold worked closely with New Prague Area Schools to address issues of scale, safety and security for pre-kindergarten children as well as the intangible social aspects of that age group in a new Early Childhood facility. The building is situated within an Elementary site in an effort to introduce new families to the District and foster a sense of identity in the young children with their older counterparts. Multiple types of zones were designed into the program to accommodate a variety of activities at differing age levels and abilities. Additional features include:

  • Uses imagery from a home, rather than an institutional look, to blend with surrounding residential neighborhood
  • Parent and adult resource rooms for Family Learning
  • Integrated built-in storage within classrooms custom designed to facilitate better organization
  • Changing stations in infant room and restrooms
