CLA has just wrapped up schematic design of the school grounds for the new Elements Pre-K on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. We’re excited about this one. The school’s curriculum is centered on connecting kids to nature, with activities ranging from planting tomatoes to making mud pies. It’s been a great experience working with Elements principal Shilpa Sethi, who has some great ideas about helping kids to respect and gain an interest in natural processes.
