Johnston Community College Child Development Center

Johnston Community College, located in Smithfield, NC, diversified their outdoor learning environment by adding two primary pathway loops, one in their preschool area and one in their toddler area.  An arbor over the pathway provides shade and the opportunity for growing vines.

They also added a mud kitchen, and expanded their existing fruit and vegetable garden for more opportunities to experiment with growing healthy food.  Fruit trees also help the children understand the growing cycle, while also providing shade.
