Glow Children Early Learning Center coming to downtown Spokane

UPDATED: Fri., May 29, 2020

Glow Children Early Learning Center will be the newest tenant in the building on the northeast corner of Post Street and Riverside Avenue in downtown Spokane.

The center has filed an application with the city to renovate two floors spanning 10,311 square feet for a child care center at 722 W. Riverside Ave.

The project valuation is $500,000, according to the application.

Mead-based Timber CC is the project contractor. Spokane-based Trek Architecture is designing the project.

The early learning center is part of Lumen High School, which will become the city’s third charter school upon opening in the fall.

Lumen High School will assist young parents with obtaining an education by offering child care services and classes under one roof. As part of Lumen’s curriculum, teen parents and their children will engage with the early learning center and attend classes focused on attachment-based relationship development.

The early learning center will also offer a small, private-pay preschool program, according to its Facebook page.

The property owner is GVD Commercial Properties Inc., which purchased the building for $2 million in January, according to the Spokane County Assessor’s Office.

Earlier this month, Vik Singh filed an application with the city to renovate a 2,800 square foot space adjacent to the proposed child care center into a convenience store.
