The Gift of Play

Cold Spring's beloved Pear Tree Yard is the heart of the school in many ways. It is a gathering space, a place for big-bodied play, and an outdoor classroom where the natural world can be explored up close. With the completion of Cold Spring's new Preschool building in 2023, the Pear Tree Yard is now in its new and final configuration making this the perfect time to reimagine and redesign this integral outdoor campus space.

The first phase of our redesign involves the creation and installation of a brand new play structure. By participating in this important fundraiser, you will be helping us realize this goal and leave a lasting imprint on Cold Spring's campus that will benefit generations of Cold Spring students starting now.
