Giving Tree Montessori School
Playground Fund

Please join us to support an essential playground redesign for our beloved school

The backyard and natural play area at Giving Tree is one of the most memorable and remarkable aspects of our special school. Since its founding in 1979, hundreds of children have learned to swing on the playset, practiced their balance on the ship, given their first performance on the stage, and learned how to share, take turns, and make friends under the big tree.

With no substantial upgrades to the backyard for several decades, it is time to come together as a community and make a long-term investment in the school’s grounds. Expensive improvements to existing structures are necessary. In tandem with these enhancements, we plan to thoughtfully redesign and add to the playscape in a way that reflects its natural beauty. The Giving Tree Large Projects Parent Committee has contracted with PLAYceMaker to collaborate on this vision. And we humbly ask for your help.
