Serendipity Preschool

Swire Siegel Landscape Architects was hired to prepare a site design for the entire property of Serendipity, a preschool in Monrovia, CA, with programs for infants through to 5 year olds. The existing large outdoor play spaces were poorly organized and the entry and parking lot was inefficient and unsafe.

The redesign captured additional play space by redesigning the parking lot and entry area. In addition the play areas were redesigned to both function better for outdoor class use, have better circulation and incorporate a much greater variety of natural play spaces and interactive play opportunities. The design utilized the many existing mature trees to provide the much needed shade and foster a connection to nature. Play elements were added to provide a more hands on manipulation with sand, water, wood, minerals, plants, animals and other natural materials.
