Celebrated for creating unique learning spaces for children, Smart Playrooms designs, builds and organizes playrooms. Our business is based on the philosophy that physical surroundings have a profound impact on children’s behavior and how they interact, explore, play and learn.
Our goal is to create dynamic, functional and inviting playrooms that naturally encourage open-ended creative play. To achieve this goal, we combine interior design principles and functional organizational systems with a complete understanding child development. Creating educational centers within the room makes it easy for children to access and find all materials needed for each activity.
OUR SMART DESIGN PROCESS
We design playrooms by having as many creative activities as possible for the children, keeping in mind that “less is more”. Our thorough understanding of child development has given us the experience and education to understand what types of activities excite and motivate children. Smart Playrooms understands that the design, layout and organization of a playroom greatly affects the behavior, independence and creativity of children. Our innovative designs naturally encourage hands-on manipulation, learning, climbing and playing!
Our designs incorporate the philosophies of Maria Montessori and Emilio Reggio.
Montessori Educational Method: Rooms are designed with an emphasis on the “whole child. “ Playrooms will emphasize independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical and social development.
Emilio Reggio Approach: The environment is the third teacher, and it’s purpose is to inspire children by having a playroom filled with light, order and beauty. Every material is considered for its purpose, and every corner os ever-evolving to encourage children to delve deeper and deeper into their interests.
OUR SMART ORGANIZATION PROCESS
At the heart of our business, is our thorough understanding of how to create functional organization systems that kids and adults can easily maintain. Organized toys, and how these are displayed and accessible, have a profound impact on how well the overall design of the room will function. We will add photos and labels to all of our storage baskets, and choose open-ended toys and materials that are sure to invite children of all ages and genders to play productively and safely.
