Outdoor Classroom Project

LAVC Child Development Center is a demonstration site for the Outdoor Classroom Project. 

Los Angeles Valley College Child Development Center serves as a model site for Child Development Centers within the Los Angeles Community College District. The Center is a state-of-the-art, LEED certified, nature-based school, featuring natural landscape, edible gardens and fully functional children’s kitchens in each classroom. The children’s classroom kitchen is equipped with a fully functional home-style kitchen offering children with hands-on-experience in preparing, cooking, eating and learning the nutritional value of food.

Los Angeles Valley College Child Development Center remains on the cutting edge of new and innovative approaches to children’ s learning as evidenced by its inclusion of cooking centers, a lending library, parent workshops, and the outdoor learning environment. Children have the opportunity to be active learners who canexperience the world through their senses, physical involvement, and active play, and from behaviors modeled by adults and peers. The outdoor environment is of high quality; we have cultivated the concept and practice that all children need and benefit from more time outdoors. The outdoor space is considered an extension of the classroom. There are designated learning centers set-up in the outdoor environment as well as the indoor environment. The outdoor environment is a high priority in our curriculum. Children and teachers have the opportunity to connect to nature through hands on learning. The outdoor curriculum constitutes an emerging approach in early education that integrates indoor and outdoor learning in a unified environment that optimizes children’s learning experiences.
