Architecture Overview:

Omaha Early Learning Center provides outcome-based education for at-risk parents and their children. As an organization committed to helping learners from birth to age 3 grow up safe, healthy and eager to learn, Omaha Early Learning Center looked to RDG to design a space that could support concurrent delivery of both education and community care. Encompassing 26,000 SF of educational and support spaces, the Early Learning Center at Skinner Elementary features flexible classrooms and multipurpose indoor and outdoor play areas. Transparency in the design allows for continual observation of the young students, while the building’s clerestory corridors bring in abundant natural light, creating strong connections to the outdoors. RDG’s design incorporates administrative and consultation areas to support the center’s parent education programs, and lounge and resource spaces for educators.
