Williamsburg Community Child Care (W4C’s) expanded its existing child care operation by opening a second site (W4C’S North), conveniently located just off I-80 in 2022.
Our project includes both building an addition and retrofitting portions of our existing building to serve 90 additional children in our center (for a total of 180). The additional 4,570 square feet of space would include a new kitchen, restrooms, and five classrooms.
