Prince George's County Employee's Childcare Center

Upper Marlboro, MD USA


Playground Overview

Prince George's County Employee's Childcare Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was formerly a prison. Today it is an imaginative garden that grows the young minds and bodies of kids ages 6 months to 5 years. The courtyard is divided into four play areas, where kids follow the journey of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. A larger-than-life caterpillar crawl tunnel welcomes explorers into an enormous, interactive garden. PlayBooster® playstructures are outfitted with flowers, ladybugs, bees, ants, mushrooms and leaves to create an immersive outdoor experience. As they travel through the garden—climbing giant blades of grass, playing in the butterfly-shaped sandbox and sliding down a flower petal—kids learn the skills they need to transition into kindergarten.
