MIDDLETOWN — More than 60 guests joined Peggy and Eric Fuentes, the owners of On My Way Early Learning and Childcare Center in Middletown, at the ground-breaking ceremony on Nov. 21 for their 10,000 square foot, four-acre addition that will be open in early spring 2015.
This addition will double the capacity of their early learning/childcare service in the Middletown/Goshen community and bring an estimated 25 jobs to the area. The state-of-the-art facility, along with the existing building, will now provide eight acres of outdoor fun including more natural trails, large outdoor play areas, a mini sprinkler park, trike track, courtyards, a kiss-and-go lane as well as eight additional spacious classrooms.
“Our quality early learning services are in high demand and we are thrilled to be able to meet the needs of the community we service,” said Peggy Fuentes.
“We have a growing wait list of clients that are eager to bring their children to our center and we needed to be able to meet that demand by expanding our current state of the art facility,” added Eric Fuentes.
