Early Learning Center gets new, safer playground
Grand Re-opening scheduled Tuesday, July 9
The “Field of Dreams” construction work began the week of May 13 , and a playground re-opening ceremony has been scheduled for Tuesday, July 9, at 2:30 p.m.

The project is part of Phase I, which includes installing new, age-appropriate toys that infants, toddlers and preschool children can safely enjoy while replacing the ground surface within the playground, which is currently a combination of cement and rubber chips, with synthetic grass and rubber matting.
By mid-June, this phase will be complete and children will be able to play on an updated playground that is safer and more engaging.

If you plan to attend the grand opening, please contact LeAnn Dreier , 253.680.7160.

Phase II of the project is still in the fundraising phase, and will include the installation of a permanent covering for the playground, which will shield the weather and allow for more enjoyable play year-round.
