Teaching Flexibility and Compassion to our Youngest Scholars

Help me give my students the foundation they need with flexible seating such as flex space cushions and compassion for every human with puzzles and block people.

My Students

I work with the sweetest clientele on the planet! My kids are inquisitive, curious, excited to learn and wiggly. Some flexible seating options will allow them a space to learn that works for them. Their little bodies are just not equipped to sit in a hard backed chair for hours a day, even with wiggle breaks in between.

I would so appreciate your help in purchasing non-conventional furniture that will allow me to do my job while, at the same time, allowing my young scholars to sit comfortably and focus.

I guarantee my teeny clientele would thank you personally, given the opportunity.

My Project

Kindergarteners are some of the most magical people on the planet. They come in every day ready and excited to learn. Giving them an appropriate space to do that makes a big difference. Little bodies just aren't equipped to sit in a hard-backed chair for long.

Providing children a comfy spot to perch often makes all the difference in how well (and even if) they are able to focus.

Those little bodies deserve to learn their way, even if it means we have to buy new furniture. Don't you wish we could all do our jobs from the comfort of a bean bag chair?
