Yates Baptist Child Development Center
Yates Baptist Child Development Center, located in Durham, NC, has naturalized all three of their spaces in their outdoor learning environment through the addition of small trees for shade, shrubs and perennial plantings. They also added fruit and vegetable gardens, and were able to extend a water source into their outdoor learning environment so the children could help care for the garden more easily.
A range of other settings and components were installed, such as an earth play area, teepee, acoustic wall, and shade sail. The addition of a low stage in the infant area made this space more comfortable and accessible for the little ones.
