Experiential Learning That Stimulates the Senses
The Magical Playscape is born out of the idea that the physical environment can serve as a powerful stimulus for children to learn and grow - socially, physically and cognitively. The scents and textures of fresh herbs, vegetables and flowers in a school garden offer a respite to the conventional classroom environment. Children can conduct science experiments, keep track of plant data and learn to appreciate the value of patience and care associated with cultivating tender plant material.
Experiencing Shakespeare in an outdoor stone amphitheater feels as though the performers and audience have been transported back in time. An amphitheater is a place for children to let their imagination run wild with impromptu theatrical performances, pretend play and poetry readings.
