A well-equipped classroom can aid a child’s development

Classrooms used to house the very basic essentials needed to teach children. Today, they are warm, visually engaging and bright places for study. Having a classroom carpet on the classroom floor adds to the feeling of warmth, comfort and security children need to feel in order for them to maximise their learning potential.

As the classroom becomes a more interactive environment, more and more teachers are looking at innovative ways to engage their students, and stimulate their desire to learn using a variety of out-of-the-box educational equipment. Classroom carpets and mats are found in the large majority of today’s classroom settings. As well as providing a focal point for registration or reading time, they are increasingly being explored to provide a fresh learning experience for students, especially in the earlier stages of their education.

As classroom carpet designs have become ever more innovative, their uses are becoming increasingly diverse as they add a novel, spatial dynamic to lessons. Themed classroom carpets have been known to help develop a student’s attention as they can become a focal point for learning. Outside play mats support the mobile classroom and help get children up and moving, which has been proven not only to stimulate the drive to learn and prolong attention spans, but also encourage a more active lifestyle in which education and exercise go hand-in-hand. Other classroom carpets can be used to encourage young children to work together. For example, spelling words on a spacious alphabet mat encourages teamwork, cooperation and social skills, in a way that conventional spelling exercises never would.

In an increasingly student and parent dominated environment, it’s never been more important for teachers to get interactive and innovative with their style of teaching.
