FLIP THIS PLAYGROUND is a professional development initiative designed to connect teachers and classrooms to powerful learning environments. We know that all of us learn deeply when our senses are high, when we are enjoying ourselves in a socially charged learning environment.
In collaboration with local early childhood communities we transform hard-space playgrounds – often void of natural life – to engaging learning spaces. We partner with directors, principals and teachers to connect learning that is traditionally done indoors to the outdoors. In this, we flip the classroom by creating outdoor spaces that foster learning together.
Grants are available for Title 1 schools through application. If your PreK to Grade 3 community and teachers are interested in deeper professional development that connects all of the stakeholders, we would like hear from you. Together, we can do this!
