Our Garden and Playground

Our new natural play area!
 During our Gardening and Flowers Week, our Pre-K classes planted our center garden with tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, and sunflowers.  Marigolds and vinca were also planted in the flower garden.  The kids did a great job helping with the planting and learning about plants and growing them at the same time. 

Over Memorial Day weekend, our owners, Melanie, Robyn, and Pam, along with their families, completed "Phase 2" of our playground renovation!  We brought in tree stumps and rocks which will outline our new digging pit (a mixture of sand, small pebbles, and finely ground mulch).  The kids can dig in it and drive toy dump trucks through it. 

We planted three crete myrtle trees, which will provide safe areas to practice "climbing" trees!  We also planted lots of grasses, creating a grass maze the kids can run through and explore, and dotted tree cookies in a path from the digging pit (more of these to come!). 

The whole area will soon be mulched as well.  The kids had a blast playing in the natural area this morning, and we're excited that we're able to offer our children a unique sensory and learning experience through play!
