Owners, construction firm hold groundbreaking for new childcare center

Creative World School will offer preschool, before- and after-school programs.

NAPLES — Parents will soon have another option for those looking to enroll their children in preschool, before- or after-school programs in Naples.

Amy and Chris O’Malley, the owners of the new Creative World School, broke ground on the new center, being built at 2260 Olympia Park Boulevard, according to a news release.

The construction firm Owen-Ames-Kimball Florida Inc., with offices in Naples and Fort Myers, is building the 10,456-square-foot center, which will be able to accommodate up to 198 children. The project is slated for completion in March 2020. The center will have a preschool for ages 6 weeks through 5 years and a before-and after-school program for students ages 5 to 12 years, the release says.

“We chose O‑A‑K for this project because they did a fantastic job on our Gateway school,” Amy O’Malley says in the release. “They provided excellent communication and follow-up throughout the project. They are knowledgeable professionals who routinely presented cost saving ideas without sacrificing quality.”

The project manager is Fred Doster, the superintendent is Gary Poore and the project estimator is Abel Natali. O-A-K also constructed Creative World School in the Gateway community in Fort Myers.
