Our playgrounds were updated in the summer of 2012 with new safe and height regulated climbers, bike paths and a softer pour and play turf to help cushion falls while students play outdoors on our toddler and preschool/school age playgrounds. The majority of our staff have been certified in CPR and First Aid and are ready to assist children in time of need.
