The current location of the Pingree Center was built in 2002. The modern 47,757 square foot facility houses 19 spacious classrooms with connected observation rooms, a library with a Smartboard, a full kitchen and lunchroom, a gym, a Kiva, a main office, administrative offices, child and adult restrooms, and a large and small conference room. The lunchroom and gym can be opened up to accommodate larger groups including center-wide activities, conferences and training events.
The grounds include 3 playgrounds with a variety of fun, developmentally appropriate playground equipment and a sensory wall. The large, grassy field and basketball courts allow for, and encourage, a wide range of physical play and activity.
We recently added our Cheryl C. Smith Annex for our adolescent pre-vocational program. It is located on the field just west of the main building. The Annex has three classrooms, a vocational training room, restrooms, and a large kitchen where the adolescents learn to prepare healthy meals.
