This 19,800 SF facility is home to the Blue Springs School District Early Childhood Programs and Multi-Disabled Programs, providing services and support to infants all the way through age 21. The expansion adds 14 classrooms as well as a multipurpose room to house students ages birth to four years old. BHC provided landscape architecture, survey, and civil design services including a playground area and memorial garden. Children are led through an imaginative playscape by a turf-covered meandering stream wrapping the west side of the building. They experience log crossings, rolling landforms, and animal themed features while shade structures provide relief as they explore. The memorial garden provides the school a calm space to relax and reflect, accomplished through seating elements, varied paving materials, and natural stone boulders buffered by layered tree plantings.

This project won the project of the year from the SYNLAWN Worldwide Conference.
