On April 1st, the Baldwin County School District held a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the construction of a brand new Splash Pad at the Early Learning Center. Members of the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce, elected officials, school board members, ELC students and staff, school and district leaders as well as members of the Baldwin County community came out to help commemorate this historic event.
The splash pad will be an outdoor recreation area that will allow children to play with water featuring spray nozzles coming out of the ground and shower attachments that release water from above. It is a safe way to introduce students to water before learning how to swim in a pool or a larger body of water. The splash pad will be handicap-accessible and construction is expected to be finished by the end of June 2021.
