Sunrise Child Care Activity Center

Challenge

After more than twenty years of fundraising, the citizens of Wellman were ready to make their dream of a community center a reality. The city wanted to the center to reflect its status as a forward-looking community as it competes with other cities in attracting new residents.

Solution

The new building includes an upper level child care center designed to respond to the developmental needs of children—from infants through preschool age. Each classroom is designed to be age-appropriate for the mobility and emotional needs of the students. The lower level of the facility features a community center with a gymnasium, elevated jogging track, locker rooms/restrooms and a large multipurpose/activity room suitable for a wide range of events—everything from aerobics to weddings

Impact

Today the citizens of Wellman have an Activity Center that is not only functional but also a source of great community pride. It serves a diverse segment of the population with a variety of programming. This facility has achieved LEED Silver Certification, which shows that sustainable design is available for rural as well as urban areas.
