Architecture Overview:

The Early Learning Center at Gateway is a ‘sister’ program to that of the Early Learning Center at Skinner developed by the Buffett Early Childhood Fund and Omaha Public Schools partnership. The center’s 16 classrooms will also serve the early education needs of 164 young children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. The site’s topography provided a unique opportunity to minimize the building’s footprint by developing a two-story center with on grade access for the classrooms on both levels. In step with the design concept of connection to nature, all classrooms include direct access to an age-appropriate outdoor learning environment.
