CSArch provided design services for the new relocated Southern Saratoga YMCA Kidz Lodge, a 250 student Early Childhood Learning and Adventure Center in Clifton Park.
At the new Kidz Lodge, children are able to learn, interact and play in a number of educational settings including a large indoor play area. The facility is capable of hosting school-age children in a variety of activites to improve development and expose them to impactful social settings.
When the property adjacent to the YMCA was put up for sale by the town library, and the childcare program was bursting at the seams, an opportunity presented itself for a new facility. The conceptual design transformed the space into an Adirondack-themed learning center specifically scaled and organized to meet the needs of infants, toddlers and pre-school children with the capability to host school-age children as well. This center helps the YMCA reinforce its connection to the community and its mission to build strong kids and strong families.
