Loose Parts

It was a sad day when we were told that our beautiful Elm tree was diseased and would have to be cut down during the term break.

But how exciting when we arrived back at kindergarten to find that some of the healthy branches had been cut into different sized wooden rounds – perfect loose parts.

Here at Central Kids Kihikihi we provide loose parts – 'materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways.'  They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials, just whatever the children's imagination want to create!
