obs has prepared plans for numerous child care centers.  In addition to site planning and design, obs has designed outdoor play spaces including natural learning environments for many of them. These spaces put aside the traditional play structure stereotype and create play spaces with a more natural context that allows children to be in touch with and learn from the natural environment. 

These spaces provide opportunities to explore, invent, imagine and learn.  Spaces strengthen children’s connections to and understanding of nature, while developing various motor skills through active play.    

obs has created these environments for the following child care providers, corporations and other educational facilities in addition to parks.
