Construction of a 'play-ship' for a day care center
The inclusive Day Care center 'Kleine Ritter' in Tangermünde, Germany, currently provides 199 children with and without support needs with a place to play and learn together. The children are offered the best possible support through early intervention schools and rooms for therapy lessons. The support of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation has made it possible to build a play-ship on the outdoor area, which could not be used before due to reduced lawn growth and outdated play equipment. By playing on the ship the children can improve their motoric and coordination skills, which ultimately promotes their cognitive as well as social skills.
