Overview

A Child's World. Originally 5 playspaces. We reduced it to 4 by consolidating toddler area. They form a U-shaped ring around the childcare center and there were many points of entry. They have a lot of honeylocust trees of the same age so we needed to diversify the plant material to introduce variation in size and material. The site is narrow and we had to get creative with our grading. Also have a great example of a music space between the toddler and the infant areas.

This toddler playground has amazing diverse areas for children to practice their gross motor skills that include gentle sloping hills covered in grass, clusters of service berry shrubs that act as living forts, decking on the pathways, and a wooden tunnel to climb through.  My favourite component is the carved wooden log trough with push faucet allowing water play in the sand area.  The children have instant water with the push of a button, great for exploration, social skills, language development and sensory play.
