District 302 elementary school mulls therapeutic playground
ELBURN – Kaneland School District 302 officials are in the design stages of building a therapeutic playground with sensory elements at Blackberry Creek Elementary School.
Fran Eggleston, director of special services at Blackberry Creek, said the district is pursuing state and federal grants to build the playground for children in the school’s special-education program. She said there’s a need for a therapeutic playground for younger students.
Eggleston said she got input from early-childhood education teachers on which elements to include in the playground, which she estimated will cost about $150,000.
