Fairview Children’s Center
Fairview Children’s Center, located in Apex, NC, has seen their outdoor learning environment transformed into a naturalized, active and productive space. The entire preschool and twos areas used to be covered in sand, and now they are naturalized spaces with trees, shrubs, multipurpose lawns and fruit and vegetable gardens. They have also moved fence lines to expand the preschool and toddler/twos areas, in addition to adding a separate infant area.
A boardwalk pathway was installed in the preschool and toddler/twos areas to encourage more physical activity. Wheeled toy storage was added to the toddler/twos area, and the fence line was changed to include a large shed in the preschool area.
