The Children’s Cooperative Nursery School

Location: Newton, MA
Size: 3,750 SF

Working closely with staff and parents, studioMLA developed a plan that transformed the School’s existing space by providing multi-sensory play opportunities in a natural setting. Features include a natural lawn play hill, an embankment slide, tree stumps for seating and for stepping stumps, a water pump with water troughs, and an enclosed sand area with seating and storage. The School has a capacity of 30 children and the project was completed in 2017.

studioMLA provided conceptual design for the Children’s Cooperative Nursery School’s outdoor playscape.
