Healthy Starts: Infants/Toddlers
(Guilford Co.) UNCG – Curry Childcare Center
UNC-G Child Care Education Program – Curry Building provides childcare on UNC-G’s campus. The existing infant space at this location is not connected to the building. In order to make it easier for teachers to spend time outdoors with infants, the new infant space is located immediately off of the infant door. The door opens up onto a low deck with a shade sail for sun protection. Two other shade sails cover the rest of the area.
This new infant area is located entirely on existing concrete. Raised beds provide opportunities to naturalize the space and one is large enough for a small tree, for more shade. Two benches are built into the raised beds, making the most of limited space. Artificial turf will be used as a more infant-friendly alternative to the existing concrete.
