The central wall is a large magnetic board designed as a notebook page connecting rows of wooden pencils in a range of colours intended for the children to arrange letter, number and geometrical shape magnets on the board. The environment encourages spatial awareness and improves physical abilities through play on a black & white checkered floor surface which inspires physical movement. In another corner there is an Audio games corner - a big screen embedded in a robot head, enables interactive play and characterizes the tech era we live in. Children can choose audio games and films. The Reading and Friendship corner situated in wooden blocks has cushioned seats for comfort. Some have activity tables, others resting spots and library niches. This area combines natural wood accented with the colour green for a relaxing effect. The furniture is ergonomically fitted for children and the space creates intimacy while encouraging social interaction. The music corner is located within a large wooden drum. Children can listen to music they choose individually with earphones. A dance corner is located in the background of the drum, hosts a stage and dance bar and serves as a rehearsal and performance space.
The design of the educational area promotes experiences that soften the transition from pre-school to first grade by creating a sense of belonging and stimulation of the senses.
