“The Wonderful World” project was implemented in kindergarten “Svetlyachok” within the competition "We Improve the Town" by Metinvest Group. With financial support from Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant sensory room was designed to help children to maintain their emotional balance and psychological health. The town doesn’t have analogues of such room yet.
Sensory room - is a special approach to the child's stay in kindergarten. Here, using a variety of equipment, the atmosphere of comfort and safety is created, kids may relieve their emotional stress, develop their motor skills, thinking, imagination. Lighting decoration "Star sky", "Light stream", "Light shower", "Water bubble column", "Mirror ball" creates the magic atmosphere of the room. Children have a lot of positive emotions playing in “Dry basin” and with the help of soft facility called "Lesheboka" kids can relax and admire the star sky projection. Boys and girls may expand their perception of the world with the help of interactive light panel for drawing, specialized soft toys and playing with sand. Air ionizer and aromatherapy is used for immunity improvement. All of these create a new developmental environment that helps children to be themselves.
"We are grateful to Metinvest and Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant for our teachers’ dreams come true. The project "The Wonderful World" is very important for children at the present moment, when we have such difficult time. Sensory room helps children to feel emotional balance, get rid of fears and rueful feelings. Our children become more cheerful and active”, - Irina Zaitseva, head of kindergarten “Svetlyachok”, has said.
Children have classes in small groups in the sensory room - no more than 4 children. Therefore, pupils have time to play and to have fun and to get new knowledge.
"Children are delighted with the sensory room! Everything is so bright and colorful, kids are very happy. They play with interest and may express their feelings. We want to have more such good projects in Khartsyzsk. We express admiration and gratitude to our patrons!” - mother of one of the children of the kindergarten, Tatiana Molchanova has said.
