The growing interest in 3 and 4-year-olds attending preschool is also applicable in San Antonio, Texas, where more people moved there between 2020 and 2021 than anywhere else in the country. As families continue to move into the growing San Antonio area, there is a need for more preschools to be built. Ninety percent of San Antonio’s 4-year-olds were enrolled in preschool at the beginning of the year in 2020 and this number has continued to grow. The outlook for preschool design and construction is on the rise and we have a few tips to help you with designing the perfect space.

Houston, Texas Preschool Design & Construction to Help Meet Your Program Goals

A well-planned preschool construction facilitates an environment for quality programs and child development. Thoughtfully designed preschools can also promote enrollment and retain skilled teachers. The first step to planning your preschool build is to design to know the goals of your childcare facility.

  • How do you want the environment of your childcare center to feel?
  • How much space will you need to accommodate programs, number of children and activities desired?
  • How will you need to support the children, parents and staff?
  • Is it important for you to tie the indoor and outdoor spaces together?

Research the Needs of the Houston or San Antonio Childcare Center Design & Construction

When you are planning your new preschool construction, we encourage you to learn about the new practices in early childhood education and reach out to future users of the space. Interview people that will be users of the space like children, parents, teachers, support staff and administrators. Each of these groups of individuals will have very different needs to consider in the planning process for a new daycare center construction.

Visiting other childcare centers can help you learn about the newest designs and what to include in your plans. As you tour facilities, notice design aspects you like and dislike. It may also be helpful to talk with the facility staff and teachers to learn what works well in their spaces and what doesn’t.

  • Multipurpose  – Gyms, outdoor spaces, reception areas and flexible activity rooms.
