Preschool students thank builders for new treehouse

Structure was constructed to be accessible to all children

Children at the Terrace Child Development Centre are having fun with a special new treehouse.

A ramp makes the treehouse accessible to children with walkers or in wheelchairs and there’s enough room at the centre for everyone to get around the trunk at once.

The structure, constructed by Brian and Grant at Kerf Construction Ltd., is on ground level but still feels like it’s high up thanks to being built around the tree’s base.

While outside playing (as part of classtime Oct. 4), the children went into the treehouse to find a large stuffed bear that staff “hide” in the treehouse for them to find. On this day the bear was standing in a corner.

Builders made sure to smoothe down the wood, without staining, so it looks natural but without the rough or sharp edges.

The colour of the wood used in the treehouse will be left to turn grey as it ages, said preschool teacher Amanda Annibal.
