OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

Some might consider it a major financial and spiritual expansion in the city of Ocean Springs. In The Zone just opened its new $ 2.5 million facility in the city.

In The Zone is a Christian-themed daycare, preschool and after school program. The company was operating out of a leased building in Ocean Springs, but decided to build a new building along Highway 90.

In The Zone also offers weekend skating and maintains its own fleet of buses to bring children to and from school. One of the owners, Vincent Burke, said the decision to expand was easy. They were simply running out of room in the old facility.

In addition to the Ocean Springs facility, In The Zone opened another multi-million dollar building in St. Martin two years ago. Parents dropping off their children Monday morning said they enjoy the moral values been taught at In The Zone, and the kids seem to enjoy it just as much.

In The Zone offers programs for children ages 5 through 12, as well as the preschool. The company is also looking at expanding in the Vancleave community in the next year.

Doug Walker is covering the story and will have more later today on WLOX News and on WLOX.com.
