Marshfield School District // Early Learning Center
The Paragon team worked with the Marshfield School District in years past to complete a comprehensive Masterplan for the district. One problem the District identified was their lack of early childhood classrooms, and Hubble Elementary, where the early childhood education program was formerly housed, was at capacity. A new Marshfield Early Learning Center was designed to specifically address these issues. The new Early Learning Center consists of 12 classrooms, with four of them dedicated to Speech and Special Education. The facility also includes a multipurpose area, full-sized commercial kitchen, library, administrative offices, and a tornado safe room gymnasium. The emergency shelter will protect the students and faculty at both the Early Learning Center and neighboring Hubble Elementary. This gives the District’s Early Childhood Program an opportunity to grow by educating more students, while also alleviating some stress on Hubble Elementary by providing each facility with adequate space for their students.
