WCPSS welcomes the Early Learning Center at Memory Road at ribbon cutting ceremony

Staff and representatives cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the Early Learning Center.


Wake County marked the addition of its newest Pre-K facility with a ribbon cutting at the Early Learning Center at Memory Road. The Center will be a site of education for more than 130 pre-school learners. The ceremony included speeches from Director Sherry Williams, Superintendent Dr. Robert P. Taylor, Board of Education Member Sam Hershey, and Wake County Commission Chair Shinica Thomas. Guests were also treated to a special performance from a group of the Center's early learners.

The center includes eight classrooms, as well as an outdoor learning environment, indoor movement spaces, and spaces for services such as speech therapy and student evaluation.

Staff from the Office of Early Learning shaped the vision for the facility based on feedback from families and the community. Our facilities team then identified the perfect spot for this center, strategically located in an area with a high concentration of preschool students who are eligible for the services provided. They partnered with Katherine Hogan Architects and Cooper Tacia General Contracting to make that vision a reality.
