Play Equipment Campaign

Campaign Updates

Moving Imagination Outdoors

Why a Play Equipment Campaign?

Penn-Mont has been at its current location since 2001. What play equipment we had was old and outdated. Some of our equipment moved with us from the old Lakemont location. Our goal was 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 did a great job of adapting our outdoor facility for educational purposes, and, now we have the much needed play equipment.

The new equipment and upgrades help us meet play needs at every level…Toddler, Preschool, and Elementary. Our beautiful and natural surroundings 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
Penn-Mont Play Naturally Campaign

Thank you for being a part of our Play Campaign!

The Play Naturally! Moving Imagination Outdoors play campaign is coming to conclusion.  Thanks to the generosity of our Phase 1 and Phase 2 donors, we were able to raise the funds to purchase and install several new pieces of play equipment.  This summer you will see installation of the new Rock Climber Set to complement our other play pieces.

It’s not too late…. If you would still like to contribute to the campaign, please contact the Development office.  All donations are needed and appreciated!
