This centre is one part child care and one part community housing complex. Parents often spend time at the child care centre with their children. Our team had a very small space to work with, and we needed to design around a large Manitoba Maple. This required a creative approach as we were asked to create a space with a fairly open-ended age range while confined to a small footprint. We feel the result optimized the opportunity for sensory engagement across the age continuum, The sand area features a curriculum cabinet that houses all of the sand gear and loose parts; children have the ability to access materials when needed. There is a water stump that allows small amounts of water to be available on demand. This is perfect for making sand sculptures and mud pies.
