1. Ball Wall
The ball walls are designed specifically to achieve:
The balls used vary in size and texture (e.g. slippery and rough). Children’s dexterity improves as they are challenged to coordinate their muscles to manipulate the balls.
As children use the wall, they begin to investigate - “Why do softer balls roll slower than a hard ball?”, “Does a smaller ball rolls faster than a big ball?”, “Do all balls bounce?”
Creates an opportunity for children and educators to experiment when children ask questions like - “Do only round things roll?” or “Do things with lots of sides roll too?”.
2. Sensory Wall
Sensory walls are integral feature at Little Learning School centres. They are carefully designed with everyday materials which encourage children to further explore their environment and become familiar with these everyday materials.
The sensory walls also promote –
The fine materials used on the sensory wall encourage children to look closely to investigate what they are. This activity exercises the fine muscles that control our eyes and strengthens the vision focus.
The sensory wall includes a combination of different textured materials. This helps children to explore and distinguish between the various sensations they experience when interacting with particular materials.
The different materials produce various sounds. Children discover the associated sound of each material when interacting the sensory wall. Discovery Interaction with the sensory wall creates an opportunity for children and educators to discuss and discover features such as “What is this made of?”, “What happens if…”, “Why is this…?”.
3. Sandpit Edging
You’ll only find these unique contoured sandpit edges at Little Learning School.
The sandpits are designed with two distinguishing features -
The inside dips are shaped to support little one’s backs and the outside dips provide supportive and comfortable seating for all.
The tiny mounds encourage children so pull themselves up and also provide a challenging surface to manoeuvre around the edges.
