The new “home” for the Early Childhood program at Cincinnati Country Day will provide a welcoming, fun and inspiring environment to house such a critical aspect of the campus experience. The architecture is nestled within the landscape and adjacent to the newly emerging “Nature Playscape”, with views from the classrooms to the woods beyond. The design seeks to reinforce the connection to nature that has been a core value of the distinctive program while facilitating improved learning and safety for the newest members of the campus. The design is informed by spatial equity, light, views, and play. The classrooms are equally distributed radially around the central gathering space andthe “Ribbon Wall” weaves the spaces together to create a playful interaction between interior and exterior.
