Babcock Ranch: A Family InvestmentJuly 06, 2017
When young families move to Babcock Ranch, they are investing in much more than just a home.
Buying a home that’s within their budget is just the first consideration for a young family. At Babcock Ranch, parents will know investing in their children’s future because of the Babcock Neighborhood School, the clean environment and the childhood freedoms riding bicycles, fishing, outdoor sports and discovering nature.
Homes in all price ranges
Lennar, one of the largest homebuilders in the nation, recently announced it plans to start building at Babcock Ranch. Since 1954, the Miami-based company has helped hundreds of thousands of families move into new homes.
For example, Lennar builds in 58 communities in the Naples-Fort Myers area in a wide variety of price ranges and home styles and sizes. With its “everything’s included” pledge, there’s no haggling or extra cost for the amenities people want.
Lennar makes it simple for first-time homebuyers to find and buy their first home. You can learn more about how the company assists first-time buyers, read useful tips and request more information, here.
You can be sure that Lennar will be here when you need them. The company recently announced that it acquired Bonita Springs-based homebuilder WCI Communities, further bolstering its already significant commitment in Southwest Florida.

Babcock Neighborhood School
Families with children will benefit from the new cutting-edge Babcock Neighborhood School, a public charter school with a new education program designed to help students compete in the 21st Century.
At the heart of the Babcock Neighborhood School’s curriculum will be a green STEAM educational program. The letters stand for science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics and these subjects will be taught in creative ways.
For example, daily science instruction will incorporate hands-on activities and virtual labs. Mathematics will be integrated into all science instruction as well as taught as a separate subject. Technology will enhance instruction in all curriculum areas, including the arts.
With enrollment already near full capacity of the inaugural school facility located at the center of town on Founder’s Square, Babcock Ranch is accelerating development of the 35-acre school campus that will be permanent home of BNS K-8 school as well as the high school. In the interim, the current school building will be adding classrooms to accommodate more students starting in the Spring of 2018.
Bike and walk community
It’s hard to put a price tag on the value of a community that lets you bike and walk everywhere. A healthier lifestyle oriented towards nature will benefit you and your children immeasurably.
With 50 miles of interconnected trails, you’ll love riding your bike through the woods to meet friends for lunch at Founder’s Square, the heart of Babcock Ranch’s downtown district. Leaving your car behind, you might cycle to the wellness center for yoga or a jazz concert at the band shell downtown.
Children will love biking the neighborhoods with their friends, too. It will remind you of your own carefree childhood. Forget about the carpool lane at Babcock Neighborhood School: Children can bike safely to school each day.
