Building a Greater Community

When Attic Angel Association wanted to celebrate its 130th birthday year, the first thing they wished for was a gift to serve others.

After assessing the needs of children and seniors in Dane County, the Angels zeroed in on raising money for a playground that will meet the emotional and developmental needs of children who have experienced trauma, including homelessness.

Enter The Playing Field early learning center, whose educational model focuses on high-quality child care, diverse student body and emphasis on developing empathy and handling emotions. With a better handle on emotions and appropriate actions, kids have a more clear path to being ready for school and then to leading productive lives.

The year-long fundraising effort, which was highlighted at a citywide summertime birthday party, raised nearly $75,000 toward the playground. The Playing Field plans to add outdoor sensory stations to help children self-regulate their emotions if they become agitated. For example, children will be able take deep breaths and blow pinwheels or create bubbles. They will be able to feel different textures, such as tin and stones, to help organize their brains. They can relax inside an enclosed swing, find their way through a fun maze, and meet with a teacher to help them reset and return to class.

Attic Angel Association and The Playing Field believe that helping children in their earliest formative years will result in a better society for everyone.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
