The new facility will be a complete gut renovation of 6757 Olive Boulevard in University City, MO. The project will be 12,000 sq. ft. and will include a large outdoor play area. JEMA's design employs the concept of an interior "Main Street" with associated "Piazza" along with classrooms to create an environment best suited for the Reggio pedagogical approach.
