Starting with a Blank Canvas

 Starting with a blank slate....a clean canvas...

The midtown site has some character with the checkerboard tiles and two large rooms with three separate tiled areas for eating and/or art and science.

Melanie (Caring Connection's West Sacramento Director) gives Julie Jenkins Sathe some of her creative ideas on how to best use the space.

 The First United Methodist Church, board of trustees came out on a workday and took out the unsafe interior fence, removed the old sandbox and wood patio cover leaving the playground equipment and an almost blank canvas. This blank canvas will be perfect for us to create our natural playscape in the heart of midtown Sacramento.

 Soon, the fencing will be raised to 6 ft and privacy boards or slats will be added. Just wait until we add a beach, a mudpie kitchen, a dry creek and walk over bridge, a sound garden, and plenty of walking paths. Then we'll add our meadow and slide hill; and for that we will be needing some soil. Lots of soil!


Progress begins little by little and your ideas are welcome.

Caring Connection Children's Center plans to reopen the child care center location at 2100 J Street in March 2013. We anticipate being licensed for 30 preschool children, ages 2 to 5.
