Please help us finish our Nature Explore playspace!!

Montessori Beginnings* School serves the Toddler and Preschool community of the upper Cape area. A quaint community tucked away in the town of Sandwich, our wonderful school boasts a warm faculty, inviting environment and exceptional learning tools. 

We partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to create the first Cape Cod preschool with a dynamic, certified playspace for children.  

Imagine a tree platform, colorful fabric canopies stretching across - surrounded by a music area, water area, building area, art area all made from natural materials. This magical and inspiring "Nature Explore" outdoor play space connects the children to nature and lets their imaginations soar.

The link below will give you a snapshot of  the outdoor space: http://www.arborday.org/explore/sourcebook/

We've tried to select items for different age levels that just are not in the budget for a small, independent school. These include: 
- toddler play set and sunshade for exposed deck area
- outdoor musical instrument area
- outdoor art area
- tree house platform with fabric walls

In addition, we hope to build and install a garden area where the children grow and harvest food for the classroom, further establishing our Montessori philosophy of self sufficiency and the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle.

By donating toward our worthy cause, you have a unique opportunity to invest in the community's future by supporting education. Please support our efforts to connect children with nature as we continue to transform our place into an inspiring, dynamic, nature-based play and learning space.

Thank you so very much for any support you are able to give to help our children!

Settling in for our second winter! The children were running through the snow on our play space today, all smiles and giggles. With spring fast approaching we look forward to even more fun and hope people visiting our site will be able to help. Even the smallest amount will go a long way!

What a long time between posts! Our play space has "weathered" its first winter beautifully. The children are currently turning over tree cookie walkways and logs as they search for worms and insects! Many children especially love the Dirt Digging Area!
