Interactive garden will help scholastic growth
ELMHURST – Madison Early Childhood Center provides resources and education to Elmhurst preschoolers of all academic and physical abilities, but its courtyard garden wasn’t living up to the standards set by the rest of the school.
“There was a garden there, but it wasn’t level,” said Cathy D’Alessandro, founder of the current Madison PTA. “There was no wheelchair access.”
Fourteen months after D’Alessandro began seeking grant programs for a more accessible space that wouldn’t flood when it rained, crews broke ground last week for Madison’s new sensory garden and outdoor classroom, which will offer more than just pretty flowers and wheelchair ramps.
