Dreaming a playground for the future
Pam Leavere graduated from Seneca’s Early Childhood Education program back in 1981. She worked during her studies as a student supply teacher at the King Campus Observation Lab Teaching School, known to everyone as “KOLTS.”
Pam liked it so much at KOLTS, she never left. Nurturing young children is her life’s work, and what better place is there to do it than the natural forest setting of King Campus?
“I love kids,” says Pam, who is now Manager of KOLTS. “As early as high school, I knew what I wanted to do.”
Pam has made a donation to KOLTS to fund a new playground. Its design is a collaboration between Bachelor of Child Development and Environmental Landscape Management students and includes cedar logs and reclaimed tires.
“We always planned to put a playground in, but the money never came,” says Pam. “I am so pleased our students have designed it.”
