BEAVERCREEK – The Beavercreek City School District will showcase its recently completed preschool 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19. A brief ceremony and walking tour will be held in the new facility located at 3038 Kemp Road in Beavercreek.
The 18,500 square foot preschool, built connected to the current Beavercreek Board of Education office, houses nine separate classrooms. These classrooms were designed to provide a more secure, state-of-the-art learning environment for the district’s youngest students. This facility eliminated the need to hold preschool classes at Parkwood Elementary School and allowed the district to remove modular learning units at that site.
Construction of the new preschool began in June 2014 and funding was provided by a portion of the $5 million surplus from a 2008 bond issue. When classes begin, the facility will satisfy state and federal laws mandating that public school districts offer certain types of preschool services.
Beavercreek City Schools Superintendent Bill McGlothlin said, “It was a total team effort bringing this construction project to completion. The community has every reason to be proud of this preschool and the commitment to lifelong learning that it represents.”
