West Side Early Childhood Center


The West Side playground is a beautiful natural playground that serves 60-80 preschool students at our school as well as visitors from surrounding preschools and daycares. During the evenings and throughout the weekends and summer months, community members also utilize this beautiful space.

We have a committee of staff and community volunteers who help maintain the playground and add new materials to enhance learning and fun! This year community volunteers added a hut for dramatic play to the playground. We utilize our playground for special events including assemblies on our stage and family events. It is a beautiful place for our students, and the entire community, to learn and play! West Side Early Childhood Center, and the entire Decorah Community School District, are thankful for all of the community support in making this natural playground possible!
