Each area provides children with many learning opportunities in math, science, music, and art while promoting imaginative play, problem-solving skills, and socialization.

These experiences provide occasions to hone their fine and gross motor skills, expand language and communication skills, and gain confidence to engage in new experiences and environments. 

Water Play

Observe the change of water flow at our water table.  Discover which objects float and sink, and how adding water changes dirt to mud.


Experiment with making music on our marimba and drums.  During classes, children will have the opportunity to use instruments from around the world.


Reach new heights building with our large block set.


Mud Kitchen

One of our most popular areas.  Get those hands dirty “cooking” and “baking” using mud and sand.


Experience the texture of dirt, how it differs from sand or mulch.  Discover insects or earthworms while digging in this natural material.


Find the beauty in nature – use mud to paint, pinecones to create patterns, and sticks as paint brushes.


Gain self-confidence mastering the “big jump” from our gigantic rock or make it from one log stepper to the next.


Who doesn’t love seeing the “fruits” of their labors in the garden?  From seed starting to harvest, connect with the wonders of the garden.
