New Concept Adds Unconventional Twist to Childcare

Share Article

Childcare centers have identified a fun and different way to engage their kids. Imaged ceiling tiles are adding a new dimension of learning and entertainment in care facilities across the country.

Do you remember lying on your back and looking up at the clouds in the sky, or the tops of the trees? Do you remember the places your imagination took you? What if children could experience those same thoughts and emotions indoors?

Over the course of the last year, Ceiling Scenes, a division of Applied Visual Concepts has partnered with daycare and preschool facilities to bring the wonder of the outside world indoors. During learning time, play time and even nap time children are able to use their imaginations and learn in a way that has not previously been available. As an innovator in the field of digital imaging, Applied Visual Concepts has combined the technology to print photo quality images on acoustic ceiling tiles with an undiscovered approach to stimulating the thoughts and imaginations of children. Whether clouds in the sky, animals with letters corresponding to their names or a nearly endless selection of other unique images, printed ceiling tiles are a wondrous way to stimulate young minds.    

With the majority of homes in America sending both parents into the labor force, it is no surprise to see an ever growing number of childcare centers striving to establishing themselves in cities and towns across the country. Intense competition is requiring facilities go to increasingly great lengths to create environments where parents will not only feel that their children are safe, but also engaged and educated. “Parents are still looking for the same loving care they have always sought, however, they have also become more focused on what will be occupying their child’s time.” says Carol Waddell of Waddell Family Daycare. “Parents enjoy the idea of their children learning while they are at work, freeing evening time for family activities.”

Imaged ceiling tiles have been a grand slam with the holy trinity of childcare: parents, children and daycare staff. “They offer a whole new dimension in our education efforts.” relays Doreen Ritt of Tutor Time. “Our parents have been very impressed with how much the kids enjoy the scenes and the fun they add to learning.” Childcare staffs have also found images on the ceiling to be an immeasurable aid in making required rest more tolerable for children who are not able to sleep the entire time. With access to a virtually limitless number of images and custom designs, Applied Visual Concepts is equipping childcare facilities with a valuable means of differentiating themselves in the vast expanse of childcare options.
