Top Tips for Line-Marking Kindergarten Facilities

Posted on

Line-marking is a crucial undertaking for kindergarten schools and can be done in various areas, including a playground, assembly area and parking. Although the basics of line-marking cut across the board regardless of a facility, it is vital to treat line-marking in kindergarten schools differently. It can be attributed to the fact that kindergarten-going children are not your average client. Therefore, marking spaces that children will use daily requires special attention. This article highlights tips for line-marking kindergarten schools.  

Support the Learning Process -- It might come as a surprise to most people, but the quality of education that children receive early in their lives goes a long way in shaping their future. Therefore, any opportunity to enhance the learning process must not be ignored by parents and teachers. Line-marking a kindergarten facility offers such an opportunity. Contractors can incorporate numbers and the alphabet in parking line designs or around playgrounds. The lines will not only perform their intended function, but children will jump at the opportunity to interact with the numbers; consequently, it will enhance the learning process.

Choose Colours Carefully -- The sight of kindergarten-going children is still at the development phase. However, that does not mean that children are not affected by specific colours that are used on markings. In fact, research shows that young children are sensitive to colour, which can affect their experience in a learning facility. For instance, red affects anxious children, making them restless and tense, and that can have a significant impact on their learning process. Similarly, bold, striking colours can disrupt children's concentration at a parking lot or playground, thereby creating a dangerous scenario. Besides, since colours affect children's mood, emotions and actions, it is essential to choose an appropriate tone for line-markings. A balanced approach is the best strategy, and it involves using different colours in moderation. It improves the aesthetics of surfaces while at the same time, limiting possible negative impacts.

Incorporate Playful Designs -- Simple, straight lines will suffice in a neighbourhood parking lot or playground. However, the same design does not rouse children's creativity on the playground. Rather than sticking to the tried-and-tested straight dull lines, line-marking contractors should work different designs in kindergarten facilities. For instance, replace the straight lines with a train-like design complete with carriages. Children will understand that the design is a border for the play area, but they will not mind sitting on it and pretending they are on a roller coaster. Such creativity breeds fun at a minimal cost.
