Barton Malow Breaks Ground on Waterford School District’s Early Childhood Education Center

WATERFORD, MI — Barton Malow Builders’ K12 group joined Waterford School District (WSD) officials, community members, and students to celebrate the groundbreaking of the district’s new Stepanski Early Childhood Center. The early childhood education development is the first new construction build in Waterford School District in 55 years.

Part of WSD’s 2020 Bond Program, the 67,000-square-foot building — which will also boast an 88,000-square-foot outdoor play area for all accessibility levels — will feature 27 interchangeable classrooms, a large motor skills room, and a kitchen learning area. When complete in 2024, the center will have the capacity to house up to 600 students.

“Research has shown that a child’s experiences during these early years directly affect how the brain develops and, in particular, how those experiences have a long-term impact on the child’s health and ability to learn and succeed in school and in life,” WSD Superintendent Scott A. Lindberg said in a press release. “I’m proud that WSD is on the cutting-edge of early childhood education by constructing this state-of-the-art center and so grateful to our community for its support.”

The Barton Malow Family of Companies is comprised of four entities and five partner firms across North America. With more than 3,000 team members and 16 offices, the company is a 100 percent employee-owned enterprise.
