The Problem

The objective of renovation and restoring Skytown is to start the Skytown Garden to grow food, sensory planter boxes and attract native flora, therapeutic gardens that include areas to provide a sensory and gross movement area, protect the wood around our yard to avoid future replacement of our fencing, and to expand our play area and create diversity in the play the children engage in and to continue providing and outstanding experience to the Skytown community while still keeping in mind the health and the safety of everyone at the school.

Our Plan

We are planning on fundraising and applyling for grants in order to achieve the combination of our open yard environment, gardens and therapeutic area will help the school incorporate new methodologies that promote new experiences to encourage, progressively, meaningful learning and the development of skills of our students in an interdisciplinary way, in an environment where their self-esteem and social integration is enhanced. The emerging methodologies and experiences will diversify learning, activities and their effect, motivate capacity and stimulate new areas of enrichment and growth, create new areas of interest and growth, and encourage biophilia. All of the children will benefit from creating a space for all neurotypical and neurodiverse children at Skytown.
