Let's Build a Tree House!

Do you remember how a backyard tree house would magically transport you to extraordinary times and places as a child? You can provide that same joy to our children at the WIU Infant and Preschool Center!

Since 1977, the Western Illinois University Infant and Preschool Center has served over 1,300 children of students, faculty, staff and community members.  In 2014, we embarked on a journey to create a nature certified playground experience for our little ones. 

You know that children today spend significantly less time outside than previous generations.  Your gift to our campaign will inspire increased outdoor play, resulting in these benefits for our kids (and more!):

  • benefits social and physical development
  • improves fitness and motor skills
  • supports creativity and imaginative play
  • reduces stress
  • creates empathy for nature 

You can inspire this outdoor play by making a gift toward the purchase of our very own tree house!  With multiple levels and easy access, this tree house will be enjoyed by all of our toddler and preschool children.
