Walled Lake Schools is excited to break ground on what will be a state-of-the-art 38,385-square-foot Early Childhood Center (ECC), located at 13 Mile Road, near M-5 in Novi.
"At a time when so many are experiencing the challenges of the global pandemic, Walled Lake Schools is grateful to be able to look toward our future, and plan to serve our early learners in a state-of-the-art facility. We thank our community for overwhelmingly passing the May 2019 bond that paves a bright future for our children," said Superintendent Kenneth Gutman.
“This will be a multi-disciplinary Early Childhood Center that is sure to showcase the latest in educational opportunities and give Walled Lake Schools' children a solid foundation,” said Cathy Kochanski, assistant superintendent of Learning Services.
The ECC will feature 16 classrooms, with a natural environment theme throughout its design. The location has views to wetlands and forest, and is slated to open in the 2022-23 school year.
The ECC is designed by TMP Architecture, Bloomfield Hills, and constructed by Auch Construction, Pontiac.
The funding for the ECC is a result of the Buildings, Infrastructure and Equity Bond that the community approved in May of 2019.
