The Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center, brings together three remote school district pre-school programs in a single, centrally located, blended facility. The programs include a tuition-based pre-school, Head Start, and the Early Childhood Education program that serves students with developmental disabilities. The 55,000 sf facility is designed to address the unique needs of the early learner with a focus on improving lives of preschoolers of all abilities through individualized, purposeful, play-based activities.
AHBL’s civil engineering design team developed over 2,500 sf of street frontage improvements for the new early learning facility. Street frontage improvements were triggered by the city of Shoreline’s site development requirements.
The improvements involved street widening, streetscape accessibility design, and stormwater infrastructure expansion. Additionally, AHBL implemented both flow control and bioretention as LID stormwater management tactics.
Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center is now home to all Shoreline Public School’s preschool programs. This project was completed in 2019.
