Headwaters Discovery Program, Abington Friends School

Jenkintown, PA

After the completion of Abington Friends School’s (AFS) Garden Station (for early childhood students), we worked with the school once again to design and build AFS Outside: an abstract play structure, water feature, and associated landscape forms. Here, older students can crawl, swing, run, and climb during their breaks from classroom learning. This area has become a central part of AFS’ curriculum; the structure challenges young students to take physical risks on their own terms and integrate the adjacent natural forms into their everyday play.
