Outdoor / Drop-In

Loose Parts in the Playscape/Park

Drop-In ǀ Children 0 to 6 years old

Have you noticed that when you give a child a gift, they are more interested in exploring the box and wrapping than in what is inside? That is what loose parts are all about!  Loose parts could be a plastic tube, a cardboard box, sticks or stones. What happens when your child finds these materials outside? Children are naturally curious and when we invite them to explore loose parts in our outdoor space, there is freedom to move and explore.

The possibilities are endless! Come join us for some fun.
