Allstar Childcare Centre
Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds worked with the team at Allstar Childcare & Preschool to create a sensory-rich outdoor learning environment for their childcare space.
Despite the smaller form-factor of their space, the team looked to pack as much sensory “punch” as possible while also providing a classroom space for instruction. The space includes dual sand and water areas, complete with portable water pump and mud kitchen, a hanging Amadinda for musical/creative stimulus, an accessible log border with an integrated log tunnel and plenty of planting to include natural shade and loose parts. The dual classroom areas include activity tables, stump seats, our outdoor chalkboards and curriculum cabinets for easy-access storage of teaching and play materials outdoors. Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Whoville house, a crowd favourite, that sits adjacent to the smaller of the two sand and water areas and provides a “home base” for play, and a jump-o point for the children’s imaginations.
