Annapolis Valley Register - - COMMUNITY - BY ASH­LEY THOMP­SON

The Berwick & District Nurs­ery School’s ex­ec­u­tive is work­ing to­ward in­stalling a play­ground that will en­cour­age stu­dents to ex­plore the depths of their imag­i­na­tions.

“A nat­u­ral play­ground is built with the idea that kids can use in­stal­la­tions for mul­ti­ple pur­poses,” ex­plained Jill Eas­son, the school’s sec­re­tary, in a re­cent in­ter­view.

“(Staff have) al­ways wanted to do this and bring more of their les­son plan­ning out­side.”

The school’s tra­di­tional slide­and-climbers style play struc­ture is now off lim­its due to dry rot, leav­ing vol­un­teers over­see­ing the non-profit, par­ent-led co-op­er­a­tive tasked with fundrais­ing $25,000 to put in a new play­ground.
