The Pegasus School

The Outdoor Classroom at The Pegasus School provides a wonderful learning and play space for children. We are very fortunate to have a large area with several mature trees. The entrance is covered in a beautiful vine and we have added a new butterfly garden.

We have a water pump and stream that engages children in process of pumping, damning the river, and learning the ways of water play in a mostly natural setting. The Outdoor Classroom has a mud kitchen and mud pit area as well as a sandbox. We also have a spider swing, traditional swing set, and small rock climbing slide. Children love to swing, climb and slide all day. They can also sit in a hammock under a tree to read a book, or flip over logs looking for worms.

The children can check out an explorer backpack with binoculars and bird and bug guides. Our stage is a perfect space for music, singing and dancing. We also have paint, markers and paper out daily so that students can create their own masterpieces. The Outdoor Classroom teachers collaborate with all teachers to provide nature or environmental activities that align with the current units studied inside the classroom.
