Founded in 1969 and nationally recognized for excellence, Kensington School is a private nursery, preschool and kindergarten serving children and families in the suburbs of Chicago.
Kensington School had to create a modern and informative website in line with 2017 web standards. The site had to have information regarding all their schools and curriculums in addition to a blog and careers portal.
The site needed to reflect the essence of being a student at Kensington. By giving the site a more English grammar school look and feel, It had to convey to users the impression that they are visiting a prestigious school for young children.
While using WordPress, Plego designed and developed a fully featured website for Kensington School. Through the use of both traditional design techniques and modern functionality, Plego was able to provide Kensington with the right blend of themes that led to the site being a success.
Below are some of the main sections of this site:
The landing page for the organization, providing an overview to all the different sections on the site. The boxes that composed the page were completely dynamic and transformable within the CMS.
The site was built with a condensed tiled architecture, reminiscent of collages often seen on teachers walls inside of classrooms. The site wanted to give a classroom type of vibe so visitors would feel like they are in one of the schools. The experience was optimized tin all forms including PC’s, Tablets and Smartphones.
