Early Childhood Center
ECEC building drawing
The Early Childhood Center (EC) is located on the west campus, south of the future Technical Education Center (TE) and the existing detention pond. The building houses The Beem Demonstration Center (the college’s Early Childhood Education program). The facility is approximately 22,500 square feet.

The new center serves 116 children and is located along a new road that ties into existing Lambert Road, just west of the main campus. The classrooms are organized under a simple sky-lit roof with an undulating interior corridor “street,” which playfully widens to become a flexible indoor activity area at the center of the building. The indoor street is naturally lit from above with skylights and provides a protected play area for large motor skill development during inclement weather. All of the classrooms have direct access to the outdoor play areas, with covered porches for sheltered outdoor activities.
