Ontario's First Design Challenge Breaks Ground

The Hub Childcare Centre at Rednersville Public School is being completely revamped after Ontario's first Design Challenge.

Last October, Wentworth Landscapes hosted Seneca College and Niagara Parks School of Horticulture for the Come Alive Outside Design Challenge. The challenge creates the opportunity for college, high school, elementary and preschool students to work together with landscape professionals to design and build engaging outdoor learning environments at schools and childcare facilities. Last year the Seneca College students won for best overall design.

On Monday, September 25th 2017, Wentworth Landscapes broke ground at The Hubb to implement the collaborative design between Seneca College and Wentworth Landscapes. Pictured above are The Hub staff with the children that attend, the Grade three teacher at Massassauga-Rednersville Public School with her grade 3 class (of last year) who were invovled in the intial design process, and Scott Wentworth, Owner and President of Wentworth Landscapes.

The natural playground and outdoor learning environment will feature a Teepee, sand play area, trike-track, outdoor classroom with logs for seating, colourful tire snake, outdoor musical area, and a grass maze. One of the major goals of the design was to create a natural learning environment that encourages interaction with the space using all five senses.

The project is set for completion at the end of October. See album below for more photos of the ground breaking.
