Bloomfield Family Learning Center | Bloomfield, New Mexico
This new 58,000 square foot early education center houses the Early Head Start through first grade programs and doubles as a community center after hours.
Facilities include classrooms, spacious hallways with reading nooks, a parent room / library, a conference / training room, a multi-purpose room that can be divided into two spaces, a kitchen, and administrative offices. Each classroom is infused with natural daylighting and provides direct access to the enclosed playground, which was specially designed for young children.
To meet the Building Committee’s vision for the facility as place that evokes “home” and “family”, the Center was designed to resemble a small village. In recognition of its unique, whimsical design, the project was awarded both the “Best Interior” and “Best Exterior” awards for 2003 by the New Mexico Association of General Contractors.
