M-0 and M-1 were renovated in 1969 to turn the GI Bulge-era buildings into a child care center with classrooms, dining, napping and outdoor play areas. The original M-1 building, also a pre-fabricated unit, was demolished in 1986 and then rebuilt as part of a renovation project that included an addition to M-0 and renovations to M-17.
