Lee & Associates | Maryland has brokered a lease with Brookfield Christian School for 5,432 square feet of space within 5890 Cedar Lane, a free-standing, single-story building in Columbia. This represents the third Howard County location for the private, independent school, joining sites in Clarksville and Maple Lawn.
Situated on an approximate one acre parcel that includes an outdoor playground area, the building is configured to support an educational use with five separate classrooms, two offices, child-size bathrooms in each classroom and a fully-equipped library and kitchen. The building was formerly occupied by MKD Kids Learning Center. Established in 1998, Brookfield Christian School provides early childhood education programs for infants through the kindergarten level, as well as supplemental before-school and after-school education and activities for school-aged youngsters. The curriculum covers the domains of language arts, mathematics, personal and social development, social studies, science, math and science and physical development and health education.
“We were searching for another location not far from our other two sites and this building made perfect sense on many levels based on its former use and position within the community of Columbia,” stated Cheryle Johnson, Owner and Administrator of Brookfield Christian School. “The demographics surrounding the building was exactly what we needed, and the existing school layout suits our purposes. Our concept uses self-contained classrooms instead of open spaces and we only need to make minor changes. It is an extremely quaint building.”
