In 2010 hdesigngroup began to assist the Republic R-III School District with master planning, which led in part to a new Early Childhood Center. Completed in 2014, this center offered four classrooms for district-led preschool programming as well as special education services. The City of Republic has continued to grow, and their needs soon exceeded the current facility. In 2019, hdesigngroup was called upon to begin design for a new facility that would accommodate the district now and in the future. This new 35,000-square-foot facility has recently been opened.
