The new 18th Street Center replaced the existing childcare facilities and provides infant, toddler, preschool, and limited kindergarten care for children of Nationwide Children’s Hospital staff. The project was constructed in two phases and is built on the site of the previous center and the adjacent NCH owned parking lot. The program included comprehensive daycare services, playgrounds, drop off, and staff parking lot.
The existing center maintained continuous operations during construction. Once the newly constructed Phase 1 areas were completed and occupied, Phase 2 work commenced with the demolition of the existing center and completion of the childcare center and new staff parking lot.
