How does furniture create a secure, homelike environment?

A Community Playthings Case Study: Wright State University Child Development Center, Dayton, OH

Located in Dayton OH, Wright State CDC, part of Mini University, Inc., mainly serves families who require long hours of childcare. Staff at Mini U know that all children thrive when they feel cared for and respected.  

Providing warm, homelike environments visibly demonstrates this respect for the child. In this video, Julie Thorner, President of MiniU, and Brittany Leavelle, director of Wright State CDC, discuss their decision to choose beautiful, natural furniture for their center and how this affects children’s play and learning.
