Access Gate to the Pinecone Play Yard Fence
It's not just an additional emergency exit for staff and students - it's also a shortcut to the best kite-flying field around!
Shade Awnings installed in the Pinecone Play Yard
It gets hot out here - but now teachers can pull the awnings out to block the shade, and tuck them away to prepare for wind or rain!
Project Wish List
These are projects we're excited to tackle next! Your donations will help us fund projects like these - and more!
Decking in the Acorn/Seedling Yard
A deck in this spot would elevate (and level) the outdoor sink to make it more usable, as well as give students/teachers a perfect shady spot for reading, dramatic play, and hosing off feet after a mud pit session!
