W427.2-1 - Macfeat Nursery School


In 1939, construction on the Macfeat Nursery School building was completed. The building was named for Minnie Macfeat, an 1888 Winthrop alumna and graduate of the Montessori School in Rome. Macfeat spearheaded the kindergarten movement in South Carolina and established a kindergarten program at Winthrop in 1899. In 1986 the preschool and kindergarten programs were relocated to Withers/W.T.S. Building. The space then housed the Academic Computing Center until it was converted for use as a reception area for Vivian Moore Carroll Hall and a meeting space in fall 2009.
