With the school year coming up, Child Development Services of Fremont County (a.k.a. CDS) gave me an inside look at how they do good in the community - the Heidt and Depth mission statement - and a request to help them figure out how to take their efforts further. Here's what we did.
Build more opportunities for learning
Over a 2 week span, I partnered with a carpenter to produce 2 pieces of custom-fabricated playground equipment that look like school buses. We had a blast doing it, but the teachers were even more excited to see them. Why? Between the 2 buses, there are dozens of new opportunities for sensory learning: shapes, colors, textures, sounds, things to touch, and settings to build friendships through creativity.
