The Play Yard
Large Motor Skills and Negotiation

Our play yard offers children a chance to expend their energies in a safe and supervised area. Along with our structure, we have a sand box, bicycles, scooters, balls, seesaws, balance beams and giant blocks to help develop their large motor skills. We also see the development of their socialization and negotiation abilities and how they learn team-building competence.

The yard is supervised at all times by no less than two adults, to ensure safe play and shared experiences. Our water table often holds bubbles, birdseed, dry rice or some form of tactile encounter for the children to investigate. Tricycles are provided daily on our concrete loop, with stops at the gas station and mailbox a favorite outing. Weather permitting, children have monitored hose and sand play access year-round. Sandy feet and hands often build castles and roads, dig holes or search for buried treasure!
