Healthy Starts: Infants/Toddlers

(Guilford Co.) Willow Oaks Child Development Center

Willow Oaks Child Development Center in Greensboro, NC has an infant/toddler space in a courtyard, surrounded by a building on three sides.  The entire space is currently poured-in-place surface.  The center’s first priority is to remove the poured-in-place, except for a narrow strip on the edge of the concrete under the breezeway.

The design goals were to diversify and naturalize the outdoor learning environment.  Willow Oaks Child Development Center plans to add a primary pathway with a multipurpose lawn and relocated water table in the center, a low deck with bench edge, and fruit and vegetable garden.  In addition to these settings, perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees will turn this space into a living landscape.
