The Early Childhood Language & Learning Center is the first component of a master-planned educational campus for the Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas. The Early Childhood Center is programmed to reflect a detailed analysis of the tribe’s needs and goals for educating its youngest members. The facility features ample windows, lobbies, and circulation spaces of various scales and color palettes for wayfinding, and vibrant gathering spaces to reflect and enhance the joyous time of early childhood. Generous windows invite natural light and reflect the cultural importance of a vital connection to nature.

As the educational campus expands, the various components will be connected via covered walkways that serve two purposes – shelter, and a means to connect utilities to the central plant and between buildings. Exterior courtyards will serve as environmentally connected outdoor teaching spaces, featuring paving patterns that reflect the tribe’s connection with nature. Ultimately, while being cost-effective and efficiently managing user flows, the master plan will provide an engaging learning environment for the tribe’s youth.
