Little ones can let their imaginations soar out of the home-style setting and into the busy town outside. The play mailbox, store and puppet theater are just waiting to be used with by some curious youngsters. Through pretend play, children explore the world around them and gain an opportunity for personal expression. A puppet center and dramatic play center aren’t just part of the latest preschool trends, they are also an integral part of your little ones’ growth and development. Giving little ones a platform for acting out scenarios encourages cooperative learning and individual exploration.

Shatterproof mirrors in a variety of shapes and styles encourage little ones to examine their own reflections as they learn about the world around them. Mirrors help babies learn how to track images and focus while promoting social and emotional development.
What toys are safe for toddlers?
Soft play toys promote gross-motor skill development and are safe enough for your youngest students. Their pliability makes them easy to grasp - even for your youngest learners who are developing grabbing skills. Many of our soft play toys come in vibrant and enriching colors, so they also make your classroom more inviting. Their vinyl exteriors are easy to wipe down and resistant to rips and tears. Soft blocks are perfect for young learners because they are lightweight, easy to grab and lots of fun to stack.
Big soft shapes are great for climbers and crawlers. We offer large shape sets that can be arranged and rearranged to help little ones focus on different gross motor skills. They promote balance and encourage curiosity. Large soft shapes are perfect for developing learners because they cushion trips and falls. Soft slides, steps, ramps and more form an enticing indoor playground that is just right for the children in your preschool or daycare.
How can you make a safe play area for babies or toddlers?
Play yards are great for babies and young toddlers. They keep children safe while providing them with a personal play area. Many of our play pools include safety pads for comfortable seating and fall cushioning. Play yards can also be used as colorful ball pits for lots of fun and adventure. Some even include activity panels.
What is good to have for circle time?
A selection of soft floor cushions is great for cuddling, curling up with a good book, circle time and adding some extra excitement to your learning space. We offer a variety of imaginative animal-shaped pillows which can be used as floor cushions, toys or decorations. They help young children learn about animals while brightening up your classroom.
What are the best preschool learning centers to have in my classroom?
It is important to supply little ones with a variety of choices for play activities. Classic wooden blocks are a great way to practice grabbing and stacking. They encourage children to explore the properties of wood and practice balancing. Because wooden blocks come in large sets, they also facilitate group play, social interaction and cooperation.
There may be children in your classroom who enjoy the comfort of repetitive movement or the adventure of moving vehicles. Ride-on toys are great for children who are developing their coordination, as well as those who just want some active fun in the classroom. Rocking toys are also a popular favorite. They enable children to use energy and work on their motor skills without moving around the room.
