KIDS Ecosystem

At KIDS Childcare + Preschool, we worked closely with early childhood experts, architects, designers and university researchers to ensure that our learning space encourages children to feel safe, imagine, discover, take risks, be curious, construct, explore their senses, and have fun in their home away from home.

Playground

Inspired by the The 7 Principles of Inclusive Playground Design™ developed in partnership between Utah State University & Playcore.

Through thoughtful design we assist children in experiencing the value of play and in turn build better humans to help the next generation experience the wonders of play.

We partnered with playground experts with decades of experience because we believe play offers dynamic, hands-on experiences that provide people of all ages opportunities to explore, learn, and make connections within their community, for meaningful relationships.

  • Cognitive
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Sensory
  • Communication

It is through play that we inspire the mental and emotional mind, motivate the physical body, and discover an awareness of spirit and equality. Now more than ever, it is critical to study play behaviour, seek knowledge on the power of play, and promote best practices that advocate lifelong play across nations.

We believe that play is fundamental in the development of healthy children.

Our indoor and outdoor gardens enable kids to get hands-on experience digging, planting, watering and caring for things that grow including vegetables, herbs, flowers and vines.

Play should involve the opportunity to bring physical, social-emotional, sensory, cognitive and communicative experience to the environment
