The children spent three days constructing their coconut boats.

The finished product was truly a work of art–“RoseWay” sails, flags, cork captains and crew members, and painted rims.

When we reached the Lagoon, we had snack on the bridge and watched the current below.

Then we picked out a spot for “home base”.

An iguana visits at lunch time! As the iguana crept closer, the brave five year old doesn’t move. The iguana licked his knee!  When asked, weren’t you afraid?  He said–“I’ve never seen an iguana up close before and this was my chance to get a good look!”

The iguana runs away with his banana peel.

Just another day in the life of a Stone House Preschooler…

PlayScapes is a program at The Stone House Preschool and Kindergarten.  Every other Friday, a small group of children and two caregivers venture out into the wild untamed landscapes of St. Croix. The mission of PlayScapes is to offer children the opportunity to explore in natural landscapes and instill a sense of wonder and adventure and perhaps give a lasting impression of the magic, serenity, and beauty that nature can bring.
