THE STORY:

As Lambertville Academy continues to grow, our space is constantly transforming. The Playground Project is just one piece of the Outdoor Classroom concept the we are developing.
The Outdoor Classroom concept is, at its core, an approach to physical wellness that goes beyond a traditional playground. The concept was born out of a need to combat issues that confront the children of today including:
• Lack of exercise
• Preoccupation with electronic media
• Lack of play time outside
• Isolation from, and even fear of, nature
• Lack of interest in and understanding of our natural world, and the human impact upon it
• Current trends toward a one-dimensional approach to early childhood education
• The epidemic use of behavior-modifying drugs on young children

The Outdoor Classroom creates a learning environment that promotes children’s creativity, free thinking skills, and an interest in exploration of the natural world. Learning experiences lead to increased self-discovery and sharing with peers, fostering leadership skills and bolstering self-esteem. Additionally, increased physical activity is critical combating childhood obesity, and other food related diseases.


Our outdoor classrooms consist of four spaces:
1. The Playground - climbing equipment, reading and writing centers
2. The Running Yard - trike track, ball play
3. Sensory Garden- Vegetables, flowers and herbs
4. Creative Art Pod- music stations, art easels and sand box

Please help us reach our goal in creating these meaningful, outdoor learning areas. An appropriate outdoor space where children can learn and grow is a vital component in fostering healthy development of the next generation's community leaders.
