Demonstration Site Network

The Demonstration Site Network (DSN) began in Los Angeles County in 2008. The DSN includes early care and education programs that are dedicated to our principles and practices which aim to maintain a high standard of Outdoor Classroom. It is organized geographically, with each region having its own local network organization and steering committee. This model provides support for participating centers and strives to increase awareness and visibility for the Outdoor Classroom concept.

Demonstration Sites have agreed to host visitors interested in learning more about the Outdoor Classroom. Recognized Sites, which are also part of the network, commit to maintaining the standard but do not host visitors.

There are currently Demonstration Sites in nine counties:

All centers may apply for Demonstration or Recognized status. For more information, contact us.
