First day of school for Maize Early Childhood Center

MAIZE, Kan. (KWCH) The Maize Early Childhood Center welcomed its first group of students Tuesday.

The center is the district's first stand-alone preschool specifically built for early learning.

"This is just a dream come true for me, honestly, to have a full early childhood building," Maize Early Childhood Center Principle June Rempel says

Rempel says she worked with designers to create a building completely geared toward early childhood. The building also is created to accommodate children with special needs.

The Maize building is the result of a bond vote issued in June 2015. It currently serves 300 children for the 2017-2018 school year.

They're goal is to welcome all children and meet all their needs as long as they have the space.

The early childhood center has several events you can get involved in.
