Support Our Playground Build Project

Child playing during Educational playtime in Rochester, NY at Greece Montessori School

Support our Playground Build Project at Greece Montessori School, by helping to enhance our outdoor play area! We're thrilled to embark on this Montessori-informed and nature-inspired journey to transform our outdoor space into a vibrant haven for our children.


Our vision includes raised planter beds, inviting children to connect with nature firsthand as they plant and nurture a variety of flowers and vegetables in their very own garden. This hands-on experience fosters a sense of responsibility and stewardship, teaching valuable life skills while instilling a love for the natural world.

Central to our design is a carefully crafted wooden playscape, where imagination knows no bounds. With slides to zoom down and areas to climb and explore, children will delight in endless adventures while developing gross motor skills and fostering creativity.

In addition to traditional playground features, our space will also showcase natural elements like tree trunks, stumps, and rocks, inviting children to engage in imaginative play and discovery. These elements not only inspire wonder but also provide opportunities for sensory exploration and connection with the environment.

At Greece Montessori School, we believe in nurturing the whole child—mind, body, and spirit. Our Playground Build Project embodies this philosophy, offering a dynamic outdoor environment where children can learn, play, and thrive in harmony with nature. Join us as we create a space where joy, learning, and wonder abound!
