Level Cross Enrichment Center
North Asheboro Head Start in Asheboro, NC has transformed a mulch-covered asphalt parking lot into a diverse, engaging outdoor learning environment (OLE). A painted primary pathway defines the OLE and loops around an artificial turf multipurpose lawn in the center.
Raised garden beds, for ornamentals and fruits and vegetables, surround the space, allowing the children to interact with plants. There are also multiple settings for diverse play and learning opportunities, such as a teepee, music and sensory walls, an art center, low multipurpose stage, and a mud kitchen.
