Child Care Buildings


Child Care

Quality Childcare Building Construction

From a daycare, nursery school, infant care, childcare center, preschool program, to an after-school program at a community center, or a summer camp, when caring for children in an educational or social setting, it’s important to provide them with a safe atmosphere and plenty of space. Whether you are thinking about expanding your childcare operation, remodeling your existing building or starting a new center, Morton Buildings can make your vision of a quality, safe, and dependable childcare building a reality.

Most states publish licensing standards for day care providers, which specifically outline the minimum requirements of the physical facilities. Morton buildings can be customized to meet these requirements while providing a comfortable environment for staff and children to work and play. From a small daycare to a large center, Morton’s team of design and construction experts will listen to your ideas and work with you from the planning stages through the completion of your project.

Benefits of Building with Morton

From the smallest fastener to the trusses overhead, Morton leaves absolutely no detail to chance. If we’re going to put our name on it, we’re going to make sure it’s done right. That’s why we employ the people who manufacture the building materials, deliver them to your site and construct your building. It’s the only way we can assure you the high-quality, energy efficiency and “new building look” that defies time—guaranteed.

In addition to the high-quality components that make Morton buildings the ideal choice for childcare structures, other benefits of our childcare building construction include:

  • Clear-spans for greater interior design flexibility
  • Easy expansion as the business grows
  • Energy savings and noise reduction (with acoustical steel)
  • Faster construction time
  • Greater strength, resisting damage from heavy snows or high winds
  • Built to last
  • Virtually maintenance-free

We are confident in our craftsmanship and back it with easy-to-understand warranties that are the best in the industry. The Morton Buildings name is synonymous with quality and longevity and we strive to continue that tradition every day. Second and third generation owners will tell you their Morton buildings look like new after decades of use. From foundations to fasteners, every detail is thoughtfully engineered and designed for minimal maintenance. In fact, the reason we offer the industry-leading warranty is because Morton buildings:

  • Won’t corrode or rot because of treated wood, true stainless-steel screws and rust-resistant ring shank fasteners
  • Stand strong against high wind and snow loads
  • Eliminate leaking and condensation build-up through roof pitches and ventilation systems
  • Control condensation and thereby protect insulation from moisture and sagging
