Macedonia Baptist Church Daycare

Springfield, Missouri

When hdesigngroup became involved with this project in 2010, Macedonia Baptist Church Daycare was using generic spaces that had been converted to classroom space, and many kids were on their waiting list for childcare.

We helped them create a design that houses 15 classrooms—with childcare needs and practical teacher operations at the forefront of the planning. There is also a full-service commercial kitchen, half-court basketball and volleyball gym, fellowship dining and presentation space, a storm shelter large enough to accommodate all the daycare occupants, and two securely fenced playgrounds.

The completed facility provides a nearly 80% increase in childcare capacity—the outcome of “Beyond Measure,” a campaign goal towards which the church had been striving for years.
