Sunshine Smiles Academy

Sunshine Smiles transformed their infant area by first removing a large area covered in rubber tiles.  They added a primary pathway to organize the outdoor learning environment in the toddler area, a low multipurpose-stage, and a pergola to create a transition space from the building.  A new infant area was also added with a low multipurpose stage with pergola for shade and an artificial turf multipurpose lawn.

Plantings throughout the space, including trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and vines for the pergolas have added much needed plants to this area for naturalization.  What a transformation!
