Located at 5700 Game Farm Road East in the Westonka Public School District, the 10,000-square-foot addition includes new early learning classrooms.
Designed by Wold Architects and Engineers, the new facility, which was built onto Hilltop Primary School, features four preschool classrooms for 4-year-old children and two classrooms for preschool-age child care. The addition also includes space for early childhood special education.
