Community School for People Under 6
Community School for People Under Six in Carrboro, NC is creating two new spaces, one for their toddlers and twos and one for infants.
The toddler and twos area will be accessed using an existing ramp from the building and a new primary pathway loop leading into the outdoor learning environment with a multipurpose lawn in the center. A secondary mulch pathway loop with a teepee in the center connects to more new settings. Another short-term implementation goal is to add a low deck to the toddler and twos outdoor learning environment for gathering and dramatic play.
The addition of the infant area, a deck directly off of the infant classroom, will allow teachers to easily go outside with infants. The deck includes a bench, outdoor rugs, a porch swing, potted plants, and storage. The infant deck and surrounding plantings, which are located on the front of the building, will also create an inviting entrance to the childcare center.
