Our design intent for the kindergarten was to be more free and fun; less structured than the rest of the school. The exterior is ceramic tile blocks in bright, primary colors and patterns to give the Kindergarten building a sense of whimsy and welcome. The interior is a bright and lively space that includes a computer area, common bathroom area, teacher’s lounge and two classrooms linked by a faculty office that can monitor both classrooms if necessary.
