St. Anne’s Children and Family Center, designed and built by Catholic Charities Spokane, delights in engaging its young occupants at every turn. With a child’s curiosity in mind, visitors are ushered into the building by footprints to follow that are sand-blasted in the concrete, beneath a broad protective canopy. The facility interior is filled with exciting ‘events’, whimsical art and design elements. At every turn, these elements create an undeniable sense that this is a place for children to be safe and have fun. The facility serves a wide variety of economic strata, from state-assisted children to upper-economic strata kids. The kids don’t know who’s wealthy and who isn’t. They just know getting to walk up the “train tracks” to the upper-level classrooms is one cool, edgy trip.
