As child care providers you know that safety is paramount. In a centre encouraging self-directed activity and clean up, storage of age and size inappropriate toys and resources is essential in a mixed age environment.
The School Age Hinge Unitdelivers ample storage, rolls but can be locked too. Roll out and unlock for when your older charges arrive for independent access to board games, puzzles, as well as delicate arts and crafts materials. Keeps materials tidy and organized while fostering responsibility in your school age students.
In a school with iPads and other tablets? Our new mobile tablet tables share technology with protection and security. Again, you can roll them in and out of the way when you need them.

While a set of 1000 Keva planks inspire architectural discovery such as cantilevering and latticework. Not to mention Newtonian physics when they try to knock these incredibly strong structure down.

("Bullet physics" refers to the open-source physics programming/animation software that works very fast). It's quite likely that some of your school age kids are aware of Keva planks through this growing YouTube subculture.
