Benoit-Brown Children’s Center

Woonsocket, Rhode Island

Originally built in 1990, Woonsocket Head Start’s Benoit-Brown Children’s Center was designed for child care use from the ground up. While state of the art at the time, regulations and standards have shifted over three decades and all buildings require regular
maintenance and upgrading to continue to operate as efficiently as possible. Understanding this, Woonsocket Head Start Child Development Association (WHSCDA)’s Benoit-Brown Center prioritized a complete interior renovation in 2017 to upgrade the facility.
