On January 31st, 2014, Chico’s FAS, Inc. celebrated the opening of their child development center, Chico’s FAS Early Education and Child Development Center at their headquarters in Fort Myers, Florida, designed by studioMLA Architects and managed by Bright Horizons. David Dyer, President and CEO of Chico’s FAS, Inc., opened the ceremony by thanking the entire project team, saying “what a terrific job you guys did” and calling the new center “the crown jewel of our campus”.

The center will serve 168 children and features a splash park, indoor-outdoor art studio, activity kitchen, and many other opportunities for exploration and play. The project renovation completely transformed an existing warehouse building into a bright and airy space that reflects Chico’s FAS, Inc.’s design sensibility and commitment to families and children. The center is surrounded by four age-appropriate natural play areas, as well as the all-ages spray park, providing abundant access to green space and outdoor activity.
