ZDA initially worked with Saint Maria Goretti to design a conceptual plan for outdoor learning spaces throughout their back lawn space. Its overwhelming success moved the project forward into the construction phase. With budget and time constraints, ZDA developed a phased plan to incorporate the design over several years.
Overtime, ZDA has worked with teachers to understand the challenges in utilizing outdoor classrooms. It became evident that the transition time physically and mentally for children was a burden for teachers. As a response, ZDA designed a customized “Learning Shed” in which staff can store supplies and quickly transition from indoor to outdoor lessons.
