Blocks are universally entertaining and even the simplest set of building blocks contains the seeds of imagination, creation, and design. We are very thankful to our on-site deck builders, Micklewood Construction for collecting all their wooden off-cuts and sharing them with the Foundation Phase. These blocks have become a welcome new addition to our playground and our children enjoy developing their motor skills and exploring concepts like early math, geometry, problem-solving and cause and effect. They also enjoy figuring out the properties of the blocks – size, weight, shape, and stability level. It won’t be long before they’re building cities complete with roadways and bridges..
