Moving Imagination Outdoors
Why a Play Campaign… and…Why Now?
Penn-Mont has been at its current location since 2001. What play equipment we have is old and outdated. Some of our equipment moved with us from the old Lakemont location. Our goal is to add new equipment and make the needed upgrades in an effort to provide students and families with equipment and surroundings that are safe, enjoyable and promote imaginative play.
We are very fortunate to have a beautiful mountaintop outdoor facility with a picturesque view that’s second to none. No doubt…nature at its very best! We’ve done a great job of adapting our outdoor facility for educational purposes, but we still need appropriate adaptation for play purposes!
New equipment and upgrades will help us meet the play needs at every level…Toddler, Preschool, and Elementary. Our beautiful and natural surroundings have led us to choose play equipment inspired by nature. This new equipment will:
- Promote physical activity; develop healthy minds and bodies
- Compliment our Montessori philosophy
- Inspire imaginative play in a natural setting
- Teach children to observe, respect, and preserve the world around them while at play
