The Carmelite Child Development Center is a day care facility on the grounds of St. Agnes retirement community in Kirkwood, Missouri. The facility represents an innovative approach by the Carmelite Sisters to integrate early childhood and geriatric care on the same campus. Although housed in a separate building, the child development center provides opportunities for young children and seniors to interact on a regular basis, to the benefit of both.
The building is a large, single-story day care facility, licensed by the State of Missouri. It is designed to complement the stone architecture of the St. Agnes home while presenting a fresh presence to clients.
