. . . And Out
Beyond our school building is the Outdoor Classroom, set on a beautiful ½-acre and home to all of the same learning centers found in our indoor classrooms. The ODC boasts centers for nature art, building, messy materials and music and performance, as well as a water sluice, working gardens, a gathering area, climbing boulders and slide, a raised “bird’s nest” observation deck, riding track and, positioned high above to survey it all, an overlook. Completed in 2011, the ODC offers dynamic, nature-based play and meaningful learning experiences in a beautiful space.
Two spacious playgrounds offer large-scale equipment for gross motor development and just plain fun – swings, slides, a curly climber and a suspension bridge. Our toddler playground is home to all the same equipment as the “big guys,” but scaled down to toddler size for safety and comfort. Adjacent to the main playground is our child-friendly pool for summer camp, specially designed for young children with a maximum depth of just over three feet and a capacity of just eighteen swimmers.
