The REUSE REPURPOSE PROJECT provides children, educators, families and artists with rich resources for exploration, creativity and educational endeavours from unwanted manufacturing by-products. This CELC initiative supports the environment through waste reduction and contributes to the education of young children.
At Compass ELC we believe in resource rich environments enhanced with many interesting materials. A wide collection of materials, with many different attributes, offers unlimited possibilities for engaging and inventing play. This type of play encourages creativity and ingenuity; skills that serve our children well today and set the foundations for success in an undetermined ever-evolving world.
“When children interact with loose parts they enter a world of “what if” that promotes the type of thinking that leads to problem solving and theoretical reasoning. Loose parts enhance children’s ability to think imaginatively and see solutions, and they bring a sense of adventure and excitement to children’s play.”
~Lisa Daly & Marium Beloglovsky,Loose Parts: Inspiring Play in Young Children
