Kidstown Child Care and Learning Center
Kidstown Learning Center in Wilson, NC energized an underused open area by adding a large double-looped primary pathway for wheeled toys. They added an arbor over the path for shade and planted fruit trees for healthy snacks and pockets of shade.
They are also growing healthy snacks in new fruit and vegetable gardens. A mud kitchen and teepee are settings for dramatic play, as well as places to interact with natural materials, and an acoustic wall was installed for sensory play.
