Treehouse Crowdfunding

Note From The Chair

On behalf of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, I am reaching out for your help to build a new, multi-level tree house for the WIU Infant and Preschool Center playground.  Children spend significantly less time outdoors and your gift will encourage increased outdoor play and it's related benefits for our kids.

Please visit our campaign page at: for details and to lend your support. Your gift of any amount gets us closer to our goal and you can also join our effort by sharing our campaign with your network. Your participation is greatly appreciated!

Dr. Eric Sheffield,  School of Education Department Chair
