BENEFITING: BURLINGTON CHILDRENS SPACE INC
EVENT DATE: May 26, 2013
We created team BCS to encourage teamwork and support our efforts to complete our natural playground. BCS serves a diverse group of children, aged 6 months to 5 years, in Burlington's Old North End. Our connections to the community and the natural world are key elements of our curriculum, a way to build skills and develop relationships. The playground was designed by children, parents, and teachers to provide interest year round, using ideas collected on daily outings to nearby parks, urban areas, and the farms and natural areas at the Intervale. BCS has raised over $25000 to complete a stone council ring, rustic tree house, sand box, and bike storage. The next phases will include grassy berms, plantings, and opportunities for climbing and balance. As always, children, staff and families will play a part the the process from design to construction.
