Our classrooms open right out into a fenced-in play area. We really consider our outdoor space to be an extension of our classrooms. A lot of time is spent in the fresh air. We dress for the weather and play outside on all but the coldest of days. Our playground is designed to allow students to run, jump, swing, balance, ride bikes, and get dirty. It provides opportunities to take risks, play cooperatively, and solve problems.
