Walsingham Academy's New Early Childhood Learning Wing
Kindergarten Classrooms Moving August 2015
Walsingham Academy is tremendously excited to announce plans for the expansion, renovation, and reconfiguration of its current physical infrastructure, including the hallway, offices, and classrooms leading to the current Prekindergarten areas, to create a new Early Childhood Learning Wing for Prekindergarten and Kindergarten students. The reimagined space will relocate the Kindergarten classrooms from the stage area of the Lower School Gymnasium to two newly designed classroom spaces in a beautiful, picturesque setting.
“The renovated space, with moderate bump-outs in each classroom, will provide ample space for our young learners,” said Mary Johnston, Director of Walsingham’s Lower School. “The project will include easy access to playgrounds and Sister Mary Jeanne’s Learning Garden, and eventually, covered outdoor classrooms. Special design considerations have been given to integrated areas for gathering, gardening, building, nature art, music, and movement allowing the natural world, in immediate proximity to classroom facilities and teaching tools, to become a teaching partner.”
“The Early Childhood Learning Wing will strengthen the progressive 21st Century learning that is happening in our classrooms every day,” says Sister Mary Jeanne Oesterle, President of Walsingham Academy. “These reimagined and renovated learning spaces will act as an essential foundation, supporting and complementing the important work that we do with the youngest members of our academic community.”
An ambitious timeline has been undertaken to allow faculty and students to fully engage in the new interior spaces by the beginning of the 2015-2016 academic year. Classroom construction is scheduled to begin June of 2015 and to be completed by August 2015.
