At the North Kansas City Schools Early Education Center, adaptive reuse of a vacant big box retail store expedited construction to address sudden growth and program demand. This option is a cost-effective way to achieve future-ready learning environments and to reinvigorate a stagnant area within a community. It brings an element of playfulness and joy to the site.

Join this webinar as Ian Kilpatrick and Dr. Katie Lawson discuss:

  • Nontraditional facilities that can facilitate early learning and become true community assets
  • Multiple funding sources and creative approaches to secure funding available at the local, state, or national levels
  • The importance of design in creating scale-appropriate facilities with wayfinding, outdoor play, and interior environments that bring joy to the learning experience
  • Cost-conscious decisions that can positively impact capacity at existing schools, life-cycle costs, and sustainability.
