Community-Built Playscapes
Keeler, Rusty
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n181 p36-38 May-Jun 2008
In today's spirit of community participation there is a way of planning and building a playscape project that not only creates amazing spaces for children, but saves money, strengthens ties to the community, builds lasting friendships, fosters a sense of pride and ownership in the project, and helps ensure the playscape's long-term care and maintenance. This method of building is called the "Community-Built Process" and folks all over the world have "seen the light" and are building projects that utilize donated materials and volunteer labor to get the job done. This article presents an interview with Cathie McCullough, the ever-enthusiastic director of the Garden City Community Church Nursery School in Garden City, New York. In this interview, McCullough shares some of her thoughts about her Community-Built experience.
