The first, MECIS, or the Macarthur Early Childhood Intervention Service in Leumeah is an early childhood intervention program for children from birth to school-entry age with developmental delays and disabilities, and their families. Whilst their playspace is much smaller than most it is no less important. * Note: MECIS is not bound by the Education and Care Services National Regulations
The second project was the St Andrews Kindergarten, in Abbotsford, Sydney who now have a groovy new tank fed sand and water play area, a see through perspex worm farm and A multi-purpose mound for running, climbing, rolling and sitting.
The fenced apex of the mound can be utilized by children as private areas for the individual or group. The mound also doubles as makeshift seating for small group work. A set of hooks embedded in the wooden apex of the mound allows educators to change the rope ladder for two knotted climbing ropes, a thick cargo rope, a section of cargo net, etc.
The large mound encompasses a tunnel that whilst giving the children the impression of being a secret , private space is still easily supervised. A perspex panel built into the apex deck allows light and communication between those children outside the tunnel and those within.
