Mills College Children's School K-5 Yard
In November 2014, the school committee at Mills College Children’s Lab School began a design process to enrich their current K-5 Yard. Many aspects were considered while developing a master plan and follow-up design build plan. Central considerations for the site program and design included; ensuring inclusion, providing opportunities for collaborative play, making the entire outdoors a classroom, including all types of play, and modeling possibilities for student teachers. The first phase of improvements based on the master plan were installed in the summer of 2015.
