Playground Construction!

Hi Families!

Construction on our Traditional playground has begun! The old fence is being torn out once section at a time and new fence is being put up. During this process there will be some minor alterations to our sandbox. Once the fence is completed we will rearrange some of the interest areas of the playground to make use of our new mud kitchen and arbor benches that we’re delivered yesterday. It’s going to be awesome when completed!

While the construction is taking place only two classrooms may use the playground at a time. Every room, weather permitting will also go to utlize the Indain Hills playgound weekly.

The process thus far has been very exciting for the children to watch. They are asking many questions of Mike and Bob and want to know about the entire process!
