Community Nature Playground

17% funded

Play in nature is essential for children’s physical, cognitive, emotional and social development. We are thrilled to advocate for nature play in urban areas, while incorporating our innovative sensory arts programming, designed to nurture each child’s growth!

This is what prompted us to enlist Site Design and GRG Playscapes in helping us create an outdoor classroom and Nature Playground for our students at Bubbles Academy as well as the greater community, with a target opening date of Summer 2019.

The Nature Playground will be the centerpiece of community building at our Bucktown location, with free arts, nature and inquiry-based programs held there weekly through our sister non-profit, Whole Child Arts.

Whole Child Arts is raising $30,000 to support the build of the nature playground and launch weekly free arts programming in the playground for the greater community. You can contribute via:

 – Direct donations of any amount
– Reserving a painted tile
– Reserving a mosaic stepping stone   – Company sponsorships
– Play structure dedications
