Jenison Public Schools

Early Childhood Center and Spanish Immersion Program

Jenison, Michigan // 85,000 sq. ft.

Client Challenge

Located in a high-density neighborhood, the current Early Childhood Center provides busing, drop-off, and safety challenges for the program. The program was at capacity and could not be accommodated on the previous site. The Jenison Public Schools Spanish Immersion Program was spread out across the district, which was detrimental to the cohesiveness of the program.

TowerPinkster Solution

The new building houses both the Early Childhood Center and the Spanish Immersion program, and offer both room for growth. The programming of the space was done in collaboration with the staff and community, in order to form an end result that will meet the long-term needs of the community.

The space offers flexible learning environments to accommodate diverse learning styles and methods. The layout will ease way-finding in the younger demographic and promote collaboration in the Spanish Immersion Program.

The site will support the necessary infrastructure to support both programs. This includes controllable egress points to optimize student safety and security.

The building will promote learning about health and nutrition in both programs. The site offers spaces for students to grow their own food, which will be prepared by the in-house chef, along with multiple modern, sustainable building elements.
