PLEASANTON, Calif. (July 30, 2020) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new Vallejo First 5 Center located at 3375 Sonoma Boulevard in Vallejo, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the project.

The new 7,500 square foot Vallejo First 5 Center, located within the Vallejo Plaza Shopping Center, is an innovative hub created to engage low income families in the community and provide a space for children to play, learn and grow. The facility includes children’s classrooms, a board room, conference rooms, open office space, meeting/huddle rooms and family restrooms. The focal point of the space is a large indoor playground featuring a fantasy theme of bugs and the outdoors. The playground includes wood logs and a giant mushroom house for kids to explore.

“The goal of the Vallejo First 5 Center was to create a safe and welcoming environment for the families they serve, while also making it fun and playful for kids,” said Gary Drew, Regional Vice President of Ware Malcomb’s Pleasanton office. “It was exciting to design a space that meets all of the First 5 Center’s diverse needs, so that they can in turn meet the needs of local families for many years to come.”

The Vallejo First 5 Center staff and community partners provide support for parents through workshops and classes, as well as connecting families to community resources. The Center also offers over 20 classes each month for families including art, science, cooking, dance, music, movement, baby sign language, preparing for kindergarten, and story time. All services and programs are provided at no cost. To find out more about the Vallejo First 5 Center, families can contact the center at (707) 784-1240 or VallejoFirst5Center@gmail.com.

The General Contractor for the project was Underwood Construction.
