Healthy Starts: Infants/Toddlers

(Orange Co.) The University Child Care Center

University Child Care has transformed their infant area into a diverse, engaging outdoor learning environment.  They added a multipurpose deck, complete with an outdoor rug, pillows, and a shade sail. They also added a sensory garden with a stepping stone path and porch swing. Three newly planted trees will soon provide more shade, and grasses, perennials, and shrubs have added diversity.  Walking rails and a storage area for supplies has also increased the opportunity for varied experiences.
