Mountain Road Preschool
Mountain Road Preschool has been utilizing our outdoor classroom in so many ways. Along with replenishing and revamping the space each spring and fall, we have focused on adding raised beds to grow our own vegetables for our meals and snacks. We built two large raised beds and grew peppers, tomatoes, peas, carrots, cucumbers, corn, tomatoes, onions, and zucchini.
We also added a watering sink in the space for the children to get water for the sandbox or to be able to water the gardens when it needed it. The children were always excited every morning to be able to eat fresh peas from the garden and carrots in the late summer and fall.
This coming spring and summer we are planning to add a small greenhouse and a water feature to the space with ramps and tunnels for an added water element.
