Childcare Network, Inc. #146

Childcare Network #146, located in Archdale, NC, has transformed their outdoor area into a natural learning environment with a variety of opportunities for engagement.  The center first changed some internal fence lines to maximize their space and added primary pathways to their preschool and toddler areas. 

They also added a mud kitchen, teepee, fruit and vegetable garden, and acoustic wall.  Small trees throughout the outdoor learning environment help naturalize the space, as well as provide pockets of shade.
