NATURAL PLAY

Children are naturally curious about the world. When given the opportunity to observe,

explore and enjoy beautiful, authentic loose parts and organic elements, children will create

connections to nature as they learn and grow. Natural and authentically-inspired toys provide

children with the materials and connections to their environments that they are inherently drawn

to. When young learners are provided with sensory, hands-on experiences, they will bring the

discoveries they have outside into the classroom.

BLOCK PLAY

Blocks meet a special need that no other toy or learning material does. When a child is given

time to plan, construct and create with blocks, they develop socially, emotionally, cognitively

and physically. Curious young builders explore and learn through creative construction and

deconstruction during guided or open-ended block play.

When young children are given the chance to play in a way that gives them autonomy over

the lessons they learn, the outcomes of their playtime become beautiful, creative displays of

imagination and new skills.

Engineering Failure

Block Science vehicles have a level of complexity

that’s indicative to the system as a whole. Move

the axels too far apart and the vehicle may fail to

follow the radius of a curve, falling off the roadway.

Position them too close together and you may also

experience an engineering failure. These simple

lessons, learned through trial and error, construction

and deconstruction, are built into the Block Science

system to encourage open-ended experimentation

in a play-based, social environment.

Cutouts

Cutouts on the top and sides of the

table provide the perfect place to

create long ramps, extending play

outside the table. The cutout in the

laminate table top has a removable

cover so children can choose when to

incorporate ramps into their builds.

MANIPULATIVES

Playtime with manipulatives is essential to the physical and cognitive growth of a young child.

While they stack, pull, twist and sort, they are developing and strengthening not only their fine

motor skills, but also their identification skills and spatial understanding.

Children find wonder through hands-on experimentation with different shapes, colors and

materials as they discover the differences between them. While playing with manipulatives,

they begin to learn to problem-solve and understand geometric relationships that they can

then connect to the world around them.

SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL

TOYS

Playtime is a crucial part in the success of the development of the whole child. As children play, they

strengthen relationships and develop concepts of self-identity.

Whether guided or unstructured, playtime with social-emotional toys provides children with the

opportunity to learn empathy, regulate their emotions, practice important communication skills and

foster understandings of community and self.
