Our new reading corner
At ylaa Densa Park we have redesigned our reading corner. The new set up invites you to relax and linger, whether the children are looking at a book themselves or listen to a story read by a staff member.
But why is reading to children so important?
Children enjoy the time together, the immersion in other worlds and exciting stories. It encourages imagination and in addition, the children learn to listen and understand connections. They automatically train their memory, concentration and language skills.
With the new bookshelf, the books are easy for the children to reach, which promotes their independence. This allows them to access their favourite books according to their needs. The shelf above contains books with stories to be read aloud according to the season or our educational topic, which can be viewed together with a staff member.
The chairs in child-friendly size are suitable even for the youngest children. In addition, we are pleased that 2 seat cushions in the shape of a sea turtle enhance the reading corner. These were made by our dear former employee My-Loan Pitschat (Instagram @myloanbuicouture), who is now fully dedicated to fashion design and her own label.
We are looking forward to many cozy hours in our new reading corner.
