In May 2016 we were honored to receive funds from the Nashville Predators Foundation to create an outdoor learning space for our infant and toddler programs. The gift of our Adventure and Power Playspace for our infants and toddlers has allowed us to extend developmentally appropriate learning opportunities to the outdoors. The space encourages children’s innate sense of curiosity, exploration, and adventure as they experience the world and test their bodies’ own powers as they grow.

We consider outdoor time essential to our success everyday. Many of our children as dropped off before the sun rises and picked up after a long day of work and after the sun has set. We make sure that our children have the opportunity every day to breathe fresh air, enjoy the sunshine, experience cool weather and jump in puddles.

The grant monies were used to build a gazebo and planting shed, lay a 16 yard concrete track, and purchase  large group stroller, tables and benches, mulch and plants, tiny trikes and shade umbrellas.

We are so grateful to the Nashville Predators Foundation for their commitment to providing amazing outdoor places to explore and play for our youngest children!

This amazing Adventure and Power Playspace is used by our infants and toddlers. Starting Feb 24, we are participating in a local fundraising tournament to raise funds to open a second toddler room! Check out our Stats Sheet here and get ready to help us make it to the final round! You can make donations during the tournament at www.kdcdc.org or https://nashville.bfg.org/bracket!
