Annapolis Christian Academy (ACA) moved to their current campus in 2010. While the campus had an existing playground that over the years has served students at the school, it soon became outdated. The playground also started to break down due to the Texas Gulf Coast environment and how hard it can be on outdoor structures.
“Because we are a school, safety is always on the forefront of our minds. It is critical that children are safe when left in our care on a daily basis and we take that responsibility very seriously. Our goal at Annapolis is to provide the best educational experience possible and we focus on educating the whole child. There has been new and exciting research done that tells us more about how certain components play an integral part in how children develop multiple skills though free play,” shares Anne Thurwalker, Director of Development.
PlayCore recognizes Annapolis Christian Academy as Play On! National Demonstration Site following the research and programming of the Play On! Program, designed by PlayCore in partnership with SHAPE America, as they promote physical activity through the six elements of play to create developmentally appropriate challenges and fun for all.
