15 years ago the Lafayette Journal and Courier announced MSGL's plans to add an elementary program and move all of its programs to a new space. 

 

The Morton Community Center on Chauncey Avenue had been MSGL's home since 1985. 

As the article states, the new elementary program was originally going to be housed in a home on Rainbow Drive that had been donated by an MSGL family. A change of plans relocated that first class to some available classroom space inside the Temple Israel on Cumberland Avenue.


In February 2001, all of our programs, from the parent-infant class through elementary, moved into our permanent home in the former Calvary Baptist church on Soldiers Home Road. 

In 2007, the elementary classes moved into the Montessori House, a remodeled home adjacent to the campus.


MSGL has plans to expand once again in the near future to add a second toddler classroom and a gym/gross motor space.
