Mothers’ Club Family Learning Center
Images Description Credits
The mission of the Family Learning Center is to help prepare families living in isolation and poverty to succeed in school and in life through two-generation learning. 

To provide a high-quality learning environment that would support these goals the organization made the decision to relocate from its former residence of 40-plus years to a new “green” facility that was designed for LEED Gold certification.  It is the first preschool nationwide to register for certification at the Gold Level. 

The 10,000 square foot facility was completely gutted and renovated.  The design allows inherent flexibility for a variety of activities and programs for different age groups within the same set of spaces. Included in the comprehensive redevelopment of the site was the transformation of half of the asphalt parking lot into a safe and colorful play area.
