The world’s largest preschool has six KOMPAN playgrounds
Early Learning Village, a collaboration between two international schools in Singapore, stretches over 30 square miles, has 100 classrooms, and the capacity for 2,100 children. The ambitious schools strive to have the best possible environment for experimental play and active learning.
The nature-inspired design was an important factor in choosing Organic Robinia. Blue skies, sand, greenery and wood invites nature into the big city and provide a contrast to Singapore’s gray concrete and steel. The six playgrounds are built on split levels, where the children can play at any time of day shielded from the sun.
Where Preschool is Playschool
The playgrounds employ adventurous play to combine art and music, sand and water, and encourage self-directed exploration and sensory inspiration. The combinations create a safe and playful environment for learning and fun for children up to the age of six.
In different “zones” the children can play with natural elements. The Sand Desk, Water Channel and Splash Table delight the senses and encourage contemplation, whilst active play unfolds on the Obstacle Courses, and it all comes together in the main play structures, The Wizard’s Tower and the Explorer Ship.
Through play, children develop social and cognitive skills and gain the self-confidence to explore the world around them. The elements in the KOMPAN Robinia playgrounds challenges and provides endless hours of fun for all its young village visitors.
"There are 6 dedicated large outside play areas to delight the senses where the blue sky meets textures of sand, greenery and wood. Every age group is thoughtfully catered for with different “zones” which encourage self-directed exploration and sensory inspiration."
