Healthy Starts: Infants/Toddlers
(Guilford Co.) UNCG – Brent Woodson Carter Center
UNC-G Child Care Education Program – Carter Center serves children on UNC-G’s campus. The site has a large concrete area, which the center is planning to convert into a poured-in-place surface with raised beds around the perimeter. They would also like to add a poured-in-place loop for wheeled toys, with a multipurpose lawn in the center.
In addition to these changes, the center would like to add shade and plantings to their outdoor learning environment. They are planning to add a shade sail over the future poured-in-place area, which will transform this space into a comfortable outdoor classroom. They are also planning to plant trees and naturalize the site, with plantings to help absorb water in the low-lying areas.
Play and learning settings will form the perimeter of the space. Their immediate plans are to install an earth play area and add natural loose parts.
