We are very proud of our building, classrooms, and equipment. We had the opportunity to base our design on the needs of the children. One look at some of the features says it all!
The classrooms are very large and well laid out as they are designed with the children in mind. All classrooms have natural lighting and an emergency exit door. The covered patio's outside the classrooms provide an additional area for learning outdoors. Each classroom has a water fountain and a toilet for the children to use.
Our playgrounds is Kompan equipment. The sand and water table is very popular - lots of opportunity to explore, experiment, create ! We even had rolling hills formed in the playground for tumbling activities, hiding, and ball play. The tricycle path gets plenty of traffic, and the children love to pretend in the play house.
Our playground is designed to be a place for a child to learn,
explore, and stretch their imagination and should be considered
as an outdoor classroom.
Children may be taken outdoors when the temperature is over 35 degrees
Fahrenheit and the wind chill is not below 20 degrees Fahrenheit , and it is not raining. Limit outside playtime during the summer on ozone days and during high temperatures. We have outside water fountains to accommodate our children's continual need for water during active playtimes. Take advantage of the covered patios and extend learning outdoors. Take care of the doors being left open on extreme temperature days. When weather does not permit us to go outside, the children will be able to use their large muscles indoors in our multipurpose room.
All of the equipment is made specifically for small hands and bodies.
Our NUMBER ONE priority is to make sure that our children feel safe and secure at Coppell Creek Montessori.
