The world’s largest preschool has six KOMPAN playgrounds
Early Learning Village, made as a collaboration between two international schools in Singapore, covers 50,000 square meters and with 100 classrooms, it has a capacity of 2,100 children. The ambitious schools strive to have the best possible environment for experimental play and active learning.
The nature-inspired design was important for choosing KOMPAN Robinia. Blue skies, sand, greenery and wood invites nature into the big city and provide a contrast to Singapore’s grey concrete and steel. The six playgrounds are built on split levels, where the children can play all times a day shielded from the sun.
Where Preschool is Playschool
The playgrounds, through adventurous play, combine art and music, sand and water, and at every level 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 villagers.
"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."
