Plans are underway for the construction of a 13,895 square-foot building off of Barstow Street in northeast Albuquerque.
The Katy, Texas-based Primrose Schools says it wants to build a two-story structure on a currently vacant 0.9-acre rectangular-shaped site between Wyoming Boulevard NE and Barstow Street NE.
The building, housing a combination preschool and day care center, will be built to for space for up to 200 students, and according to plans will also include a 400 square-foot plaza area, as well as parking space for just over 30 vehicles.
The new school, which has won the approval of Albuquerque’s Environmental Planning Commission, will be part of a rapidly expanding network by Primrose which today includes over 370 such facilities in 29 states. More than 30 of those schools were built in 2017.
The preschool franchise company, catering to students varying in age from 6 weeks to 12 years, has 10 schools up and running in Arizona, and 28 in Colorado.
