Where Children Play to Learn

New Outside Play Area

on October 9, 2017

Here in ECC we believe and work under the idea that play is the focus for a child’s learning experience.  For these reasons we have re-vamped the outside play area.  The sand-pit has been stocked with new and different tools for the children to explore.  More open-ended tools such as PVC pipe, rope and buckets have been added which allows the children to use more of their imagination and creativity during play.  Even the playground sets themselves have been de-constructed and laid out in strange new ways to instigate foreign play experiences.  A beanbag toss has been placed to the side and a kitchen/family set-up has replaced the old “snack-time” table area that was used by the food service staff.  Soon we will have a “musical net” full of different items for the children to experiment with sound and vibration.  Enough talking though, just take a look at how much fun they’re having in these photos.  Check out the interactions going on between them and their environment, them and their friends in class and now, especially, the interactions with members of other classrooms!  Wonderful!
