Health & Childcare Facilities > ON THE BOARDS | H.U.G. PRESCHOOL

Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Sunset District, HUG (Help-U-Grow) preschool will provide a safe and nurturing environment for preschoolers cultivated through the values and ministry of the Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit. Providing a STREAM curriculum of Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Math, the preschool is located in a converted one-story, 2,500 square foot commercial space with 1,200 square foot rear yard for up to 50 children and a staff of 9. AND’s involvement began with initial concept and feasibility studies with church staff to assess code and physical spatial parameters of the building. A final report, including cost estimate, was provided to the church building committee who then undertook a 2-year capital fundraising campaign for the construction of the school. The project is now in Design Development in preparation for permit and construction drawings and specifications. Targeted construction completion and opening is targeted for Winter/Spring 2018.
