We wanted to re-create the feeling of home as closely as possible so it was important that the physical structure of our play area is as flexible as possible. We don’t want to have lots of rooms where children are separated by age and have fewer opportunities to interact with children at different stages. Rather we want to create different areas that reflect the children’s stages of development.
A lot of time and heart has gone into personally upcycling and renovating furniture, resources and sewing soft furnishings ourselves. Loose parts play is also featured heavily where children of any age are provided with lots of objects which they can use however their imagination drives them. This can be found in each of the different areas. We have ensured that the environment enables the children to feel safe and secure so they can explore their surroundings and reach their individual potential.
