Phase 2: Kindergarten
Currently the Maxton Strong School is operating a Kindergarten out of a less-than-ideal facility. This building was built in the early 90′s and is made mostly out of mud-brick. The cement roof leaks badly in the rainy season and requires that the entire building be covered with a tarpaulin to keep things dry inside. Classrooms are small and poorly lit, often crowded, certainly well below the standard we envision for our children.
The new Kindergarten has a large open feel with spacious undercover and open air play space. The ‘L’ shape lines up with the Secondary School administration wing leaving room for entry into either school. It will be a perfect environment for the newest members of our school family; these youngest students are also our largest growth area, with many local families eager to enroll their children into our well-respected system as early as possible. To better serve and continue attracting a robust roster of long-term students, we see this stage as a critical piece of our larger vision.
In 2020 we have secured the finances for this phase of development and will begin construction soon. Delays have been caused by COVID-19 but we hope to break ground towards the end of the year.
