Goals and Objectives


Our goal is to develop prototype indoor play equipment for use in area pre-schools. Our hope is to develop a small modular “playscape” that could be set up to meet the physical requirements and space limitations of each individual pre-school center.


1) Safe and low cost designs are crucial to enable this design work to be shared by pre-school centers with limited budgets, and to insure designs can be reproduced at reasonable cost.
2) All designs would require extensive “field testing” in pre-school settings to insure safety and durability. Our work will improve in the ongoing process of revising designs to improve safety, durability and quality.
3) Designs which are proven safe and easily reproducible using low cost materials and community available labor would be made available using “open source” plans. These would be available on a website free of charge to community groups seeking to improve local pre-school centers using local community donated labor

    Hi I had was in a training last year where I was lucky enough to receive a bottle baby truck. I currently have several children enrolled that would benefit from this product and by having the ability to move heavy objects around. I was wondering if there was a way I could purchase a second one. If there is any way you could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated
