OUR ENVIRONMENT

Time + Space + Materials

We have made very conscious decisions about our indoor and outdoor environments. The space is essentially the stage for children's creativity and exploration, therefore we put much thought into our environmental choices. Here are just a few of the things you'll notice as you tour our space.

  • calming mix of colors, and interesting textures to draw multiple senses

  • wondrous and beautiful things to see and touch

  • classic toys, books and learning materials throughout the space

  • quality art materials 

  • multiple opportunities for children to explore the natural world throughout the space

  • mix of loose parts and open-ended materials for construction

  • daily outdoor play in our backyard play space

  • Gardening


Eco-Healthy Practices. We are an Eco-Healthy Child Care setting. Here are just a few of the highlights of our daily practice:

  • Reusable (one-time use before laundering) cloth towels for children's hand-washing, in lieu of paper towels

  • Recycling plastics, glass, paper, and cardboard

  • The use of quality, solid wood furniture wherever possible, avoiding particleboard and VOCs

  • Low and no VOC paint used in the space

  • Zero pesticide use

  • Least-toxic cleaners, no aerosols

  • Stainless plates and cups, glass bowls for children's use

  • Limited use of plastics in cooking and food service

  • Non-toxic art supplies
