Churchill Alternative Schoolyard Rejuvenation Project: Contribute to our Visioning Process
Grounded in Play, the Churchill Alternative Schoolyard Rejuvenation Project, has launched!

A committee of Churchill parents and staff are facilitating a process to rejuvenate and update our well-used structure and we’ll be considering the entire outdoor space in the visioning process. Such a process will aim to ensure that our yard not only continues to provide our children with fundamental skills (such as gross motor development, imaginative thinking, and cooperative play), but that it does so in a way that embeds a commitment to alternative educational ideals, environmental stewardship, and a connection to nature - all year-round!

We're now asking parents and guardians to contribute to this process by providing your feedback below.

If you have any questions or want to help advance this schoolyard rejuvenation process please contact Carolyn Webb, committee co-chair, at
