Preston Children’s Academy

Preston Children’s Academy, located in Cary, NC, reworked some fencelines, to maximize their site’s potential for outdoor play and learning.  This allowed them to add a primary pathway to their preschool, toddler, and twos area to increase physical activity.  

A mud kitchen was installed in each area for dramatic play with natural loose parts.  Arbors were added for increased shade and to naturalize the areas with the addition of vines.
