Outdoor Classroom


Our outdoor classroom was completed in 2006 as a celebration of our school’s 40th anniversary.

This space features a variety of landscapes to enhance children’s learning experiences:

  • a hill with a tunnel running through it, a slide, a stump walk, and an open grassy area for running and playing games
  • pathways of different materials connecting all parts of the landscape
  • a wealth of plants—trees, bushes, vines, flowers, herbs, and vegetables—that expose the children to a rich variety of natural sounds and textures.

The outdoor classroom gives children a space for independent, imaginative, and rewarding activities—they run and play, they tend gardens, they explore quiet areas, and they investigate plants and insects.
