CM NATURAL PLAYGROUND PROJECT
We are lessening our footprint, to make room for MORE footprints. Please join us in re-thinking outdoor play. If you attended our December PIP Workshop, you heard from our designers, Bienenstock - the leaders in DISRUPTIVE design of Natural Playgrounds!
The pandemic brought a new way of thinking to our world, and for us - it was a renewed commitment to our natural world. We have had so much fun redesigning our outdoor playground to our revamped NATURAL PLAYGROUND - installation in Summer 2022.
YES! IF all goes as planned, we will be returning in Fall, 2022 - with an incredible new space…
A Giraffe(looking) swing with an omnidirectional movement for incredible sensory input, collaborative play, and LARGE feelings of satisfaction.
A digging/creative pit - It has been a dream for a LOOONG time to support this need in our young humans. This vast span of sand will be packed with little hands and toes:).
A sensory path - a winding walkway with various shapes, materials, and designs to explore with shoes on or off.
Wacky posts (small cut trees 5’-7’ tall) to climb on, build with, designed for slacklines and hammocks – so much fun!
Hill slides - utilizing the slope of the earth to travel from the upper space to the sandpit.
Climbing Structure - with climbing tree components, tall nests to gather in, ropes to travel across, and even a rope tunnel.
Walking path - connecting the sidewalk at the front of the building to connect all the way around the school with paths and trails.
Maintaining the large field in the back yard with better drainage management by integrating drain pipes under the digging pit.
Large boulders and tree stumps throughout and even a rock path.
A spiral bench and large trees to make a fort or dwelling.
Landscaping and grass – all to make a space so a whole age level can be outside at the same time;)!
