Early Childhood Learning Center

St. Martin's Episcopal School

Academic / Institutional Atlanta, GA  |  19,290 sf

St. Martin’s Early Childhood Learning Center was severely damaged by arson in July of 2017. The community united and committed to rebuild a brand new center that embraced the school’s student-centered curriculum.

The new center is designed to support active, hands-on learning, and to enhance the overall early learning experience. The open and connected STEAM Village is a stand-out design feature as it physically connects three areas – an art room, a tinker lab and a science lab. The science lab provides teachers a demonstration station, flexible “messy” learning areas for students and a hydro station for hands-on exploration.

Classrooms are equipped with large roller doors to the external play space, bridging the gap between outdoor and indoor learning spaces. Once outdoors, students are surrounded by a play space designed to enhance student connection, featuring natural materials and innovative elements that encourage explorative play and physical movement.

Noteworthy: Daylighting is prominent throughout and biophilic elements are seamlessly designed into the space to stimulate natural curiosity, creativity and expression.
