LeafSpring School’s rezoning application for a new pre-school facility received unanimous approval from the Cornelius Town Board Monday night. Bazow Holdings plans to build a 13,000 square foot pre-school and 10,000 square foot after-school building called The Village just north of the Cowboy Restaurant.
The school is designed to accommodate approximately 160 children for pre-school and an additional 200 for after school care. The facilities will be a mix of all-day childcare, part-time care, and after-school only.
The 4.1 acre property is currently vacant except for an unoccupied single family home. Jeff Bazow, the applicant, pledged to retain as many trees as possible on the site. He said they currently are aiming for a 2022 opening.
Access will be from both Statesville Road and Washam Potts Road.
LeafSpring School provides childcare, early education, recreation, summer camps, back-up sick care, and leadership development as well as health and wellness programs.
Their nearest facility at the moment is in Matthews, but they have a total of 12 schools in North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana and Texas.
