COA Early Childhood School

Childcare Center Receives Fresh Updates | Milwaukee, WI

In partnership with the Burke Foundation, GROTH Design Group designed a new 12,000 SF early childhood center within the existing COA Golden Center on West Burleigh Street in Milwaukee. 

The facility serves children from 6 weeks old through school age.

Specific spaces include:

  • Infant, toddler and children’s rooms
  • A gross motor room
  • Staff planning/lounge
  • Offices
  • Classroom observation rooms
  • Stroller and car seat parking area
  • Outdoor play area

Remodeling included approximately 6,400 square feet within an existing single-story gymnasium to provide two floors. The remainder of the existing building houses several other program areas, and the alteration work for the Early Childhood Center was coordinated to minimize disruption.
