Mountain Yard A view of our Elementary School, or Mountain Yard, looking toward Art Dome on the left, and Mountain House on the right. Climbing Children climbing on a structure in the Little Nursery yard. Children at Play Mountain Place are not lifted up to higher places, but climb under their own power. If they need support, or ask for help, we assist them in other ways that still allow them to be under their own power in moving their bodies. This gives children a sure-footed power, and confidence in their own abilities. Little Nursery Sandbox The Little Nursery sandbox space.
