Providence Preparatory School

This private preschool and child care center has a capacity for 224 children with classes from infancy to kindergarten. The center also offers an after-school program for elementary school students.

The building blends with the residential style structures of the surrounding Providence Park neighborhood. The exterior includes brick masonry, residential-style windows, cast stone accents and an architectural shingle roof. Additional features include a 25,000-SF playground, a second-floor staff training room and a full-service kitchen.

The facility consists of concrete foundations, an underground venting system, steel framing and wood roof trusses. A complete site package includes a large underground detention system. The site requires widening the busy Providence Road that adds a deceleration lane.
