PreK Outdoor Classroom
Waterford is excited to introduce the newest addition to the early foundational years in the Lower School. Research shows the importance of outdoor play and exploration in nature. Waterford's PreK program has always included outside play, and now they have a research-based classroom built to enhance this play.
In Fall of 2018, Waterford unveiled the newly completed Outdoor Classroom. With its multi-use stations filled with oversized rocks, tunnels, chess boards as well as water and mud stations, a large block-building station, this area is a newly-imagined place for our students to explore, learn and grow.
The Lower School Outdoor Classroom was designed by Nature Explore, a professional landscape architecture company that utilizes research on early childhood development with their design expertise to create exciting spaces for children.
