The district’s first Early Childhood Leaning Center is scheduled to open in January 2017.

District Superintendent Peter Stiepleman said the district has been looking for ways to help unify the early childhood learning program in the district. Early education programs currently are spread out throughout the district in various buildings. However, he said the new building will greatly benefit both Columbia teachers and Columbia’s youngest learners.
