New Playground Installed

This plyground equipment is specifically designed for children 2-5 years old who might have mobility challenges.

  • The angles of the ramps, slides and climbing walls are less steep.

  • The equipment itself is lower to the ground than standard equipment.

  • Our swing set (pictured in the bckground of the first picture) is equipped with low-mobility swing which has high back and 3 point hard plastic harness.

  • We also have wheelchir swing with ramps like wings which unfold to allow child confined to wheelchir (with teacher's assistance of course) to roll onto the swing, lock the wheels and swing freely.

  • The floor of the playground is 3 inch thick rubberized foam under an artificial grass-like turf to provide safety and the feel of the outdoors.

 

Every Friday in the summer (weather permitting), we put out sprinklers and water toys for the children and open the playground up for

Water Play Day!
