Some elements of our playground space such as toys and sensory bin contents will rotate on a regular basis, but these basic elements are always present in our outdoor classroom:
Mudpie Kitchen – With water constantly running, the ways to play are endless. You can cook up a stew, a potion, make mud at anytime or just have the option to wash your hands whenever needed.
Canoe Sandbox – A sandbox made out of a 17 foot canoe with lots of open-ended tools.
Picnic Tables – 3 picnic tables are used for snack, lunch and learning center activities. Children may also use these tables during playtime.
Art Table – The art table may be used for many things, but we will often do messy art activities and painting on this table.
Easel – A double sided easel is always available for painting or dry erase marker creations.
Morning Meeting Gathering Stumps – We will use these as our sitting stumps for morning meeting, if we need a class meeting at any time, for music class or any other time we need to gather together. Children can also use this area for climbing and jumping when we aren’t meeting there together.
Garden – We will have an ongoing garden that the children may visit, observe and water during their open play times.
Playground Structure – There is a large wooden play structure that is in our current play space. It boasts of 3 slide options, a wooden suspension bridge, climbing bars, covered treehouse areas and a large tunnel. ***Our play space is scheduled to move and this current play structure will not be included in the new play space.
