LEO's Haven is a playground designed for children of all abilities to learn, play, and grow together. Once the ribbon is cut in late 2019, our partnership with Shane's Inspiration will help us continue promoting inclusion by transforming LEO’s into an outdoor classroom, with compassion as the core curriculum.
Through this partnership, County Park Friends will be able to bring an award-winning "social inclusion experience" to our to our local schools that will guide students to see beyond their differences and find common ground.
Together We Are Able is one of the social inclusion experiences we are excited to share. It is a three-part social emotional learning experience that creates awareness through classroom discussion and inclusive play. Schools and classrooms will have access to a menu of resources, from direct instruction to professional development.
Experiences can be tailored to each community, and schools who are interested will have access to Shane's broad resources to deepen the impact across their school culture. We are grateful to continue this partnership with Shane's; we benefit and grow from the years of experience and expertise they bring. To learn more or get involved, follow the links below.
