St. Martin's Episcopal School

St. Martin’s Episcopal School – Early Childhood Center

Collins Cooper Carusi Architects
Brittany Harvell, Assoc. AIA

After a devastating fire in their Early Childhood Center, St. Martin’s Episcopal School needed to rebuild on an accelerated timeline. With the support of parents and the community, they faced this challenge head on and built a new 19,200-square-foot facility that has doubled their original footprint, enabling St. Martin’s to expand their program and better support the needs of their progressive curriculum. In addition to increasing the number of classrooms, support spaces and playscapes, the new Early Childhood Center sparks curiosity in young minds through its innovative STEAM village and classrooms that provide seamless flow between indoor and outdoor learning.
