These days, running a school is not too dissimilar from running a business. Your assets are the children in your care, there is a reputation to exceed or uphold and a Board of Governors to whom the school is responsible, and if that wasn’t enough there is a budget spreadsheet to balance.
In and amongst the myriad of activities that happen within the school environment each and every day, it is worth remembering the small cogs that turn the big wheel. The ordering of school supplies is vital in order to keep the school a fully functioning, vibrant and engaging environment in which children can learn and flourish.
Allowing children to reach for the sky
School supplies covers a plethora of equipment including furniture, play equipment, classroom resources, classroom storage, cloakroom storage, nursery rugs and classroom carpets. Yet there are also a wide range of other ancillary products such as sensory toys, soft play equipment, art & craft supplies and curricular based supplies which allow you to turn any room into a safe, productive and fun learning environment.
Keeping a watchful eye on the budgets however is of no concern to the children. Children of nursery or primary school age are far more likely to be concerned about what they can create in the sandpit or rifling through the dressing up box to find someone they can be for the day. Whilst their priorities for the day are likely to be far removed from those of the adults, by providing such play activities we are fuelling a child’s imagination, allowing them to explore their creativity and setting them on the path to reaching their full potential.
From maths, science or literacy resources to support the core curriculum to craft kits, easels or art drying racks, preserving the little Picassos works of art, there is a huge range of school supplies which need to be catered for. Even musical instruments provide the freedom for young children to experiment with sound and become creative with the different tunes and noises they can make. Play-centred learning provides exciting and stimulating opportunities for children, and the more inspiring the educational resource are, the more they stimulate their senses and the better they learn.
