Area 5

The Frontyard

The front yard has swings, slides, climbing and  bouncing structures, painting easels, and a carpentry area.

Carpentry: The carpentry area is closely supervised as children learn to handle hammers, nails, vices, manual drills and saws. The children gain a great deal of confidence as they handle "grownup" tools. They develop hand-eye and small/large muscle coordination through carpentry.

Tactile Table: There is also a wet/dry tray for touching different textures such as seeds, dried coffee grounds, rice pasta or dirt.

Vegetable Garden: A small vegetable and flower garden provides opportunities to plant, dig, and harvest for the children. They also learn about the natural process of composting by using and visiting the worm bin.
