Help us Renovate our Playground

We're upgrading
our playground equipment

Much of our playground equipment is decades old, lovingly worn down through years of happy active play. What served us so well in the past must be replaced! We need new, long-lasting play structures for both our preschool and elementary students, and to support our neighborhood families and afterschool kids.

The Schoolhouse Playground Fund

Since its founding in 1971, The Schoolhouse has been a welcoming, nurturing place with abundant opportunities for outdoor play and exploration in the natural world. We've always known what today's research tells us: play, exploration, autonomy and joy support all aspects of our students' cognition and growth, including high levels of social and emotional development. Being outdoors is an essential part of who we are. Your gift will support active, creative outside play for years to come.

An upgraded playground will also aid our desire to be a good neighbor. Children in the surrounding neighborhood will be able to play here safely. We also plan to reopen our Afterschool program to our local public school kids, after a long pandemic-related hiatus; the upgrades are essential to being able to offer that programming.
