In addition to our 10 circulating iPads, Kids’ World now has 3 iPads for children to play with in our Early Learning area.  The iPads are loaded with high quality apps for young children.  Kids will have a blast exploring apps about music, animals, art, letters, numbers, and much more!  Each iPad has two stools in front of it to encourage children to use the iPad with a friend or caregiver.  Sharing the iPad allows you to enhance your child's learning, as well as presents opportunities for your child to practice social skills such as sharing and negotiation.

Who knew that given a flat balance beam, buckets, and cars, that children would build a road and a hill?  Just another example of how open play can inspire creativity, problem-solving skills, collaboration, and sharing as well as give children an opportuntiy to explore scientific concepts such as ramps and velocity.
