Design of a classroom can help with the cleanlinessAugust 23rd, 2013 Category: Educational Establishments
Creating a classroom environment that represents a good place for children to learn can be a challenge within any school, and especially in primary schools where the kids are likely to be more prone to lapses in concentration.
One of the things that can cause a loss of focus can be a messy classroom, with litter, clutter and mess likely to take the attention away from the teacher far more often than in a tidy classroom. For this reason, it can be a great idea to make sure that the class design itself is conducive to staying clean at all times.
Surfaces that are easier to wipe down or clean for example will mean that teachers can do so as they go about their day, meaning a drop in the number of distractions present. It also means that there will be a much easier job for cleaners who come in at the end of the day to tidy up.
One such option that schools might look to undertake could be to install hardwood flooring, which is both durable and resistant to stains.
Kids by their very nature can be clumsy. Things will get dropped or spilled onto floors during art classes, snack time or just throughout the day, and if you are still using carpets throughout the school it can mean taxing jobs for the cleaners as they need to work out how to get rid of the stains, while teachers also need to try to deal with it at the time and stop it spreading – all while teaching.
Hardwood floors though are a breeze to keep clean. Using these means that any spills, including paint and glue, can be dealt with much more easily, using a cloth or a mop to wipe surfaces down and removing the need for strenuous stain removing further down the line.
