A Place to Play and Thrive!

Designed With Every Child in Mind


Every preschool child in our care needs an outdoor play space rich with opportunity to explore, to be challenged and to be successful.

More young children with a wider range of abilities access the playground than ever before, primarily due to The Schoolhouse's strong reputation for improving developmental outcomes for all children. This additional playground equipment is custom-designed with every preschooler in mind.

We have the opportunity to optimally shape the experience of The Schoolhouse children each day by:

  • Integrating opportunities to explore nature and engage in all types of play within safe and natural surroundings.
  • Constructing active play areas featuring chances for development of gross and fine motor skills, cooperation and problem-solving skills, and encouraging creativity and imagination.

It is common for schools to build playgrounds with private funding - the school budget does not include playground equipment or major capital improvements. Our fundraising goal is aggressive, but we are committed to putting a shovel in the ground in the spring so that the playground is ready to be enjoyed by the summer of 2017!
