Taking a different approach to traditional child care, Children of America is education-focused in caring for the next generation. Following structured curriculum, Children of America has grown to become the number-one preschool in the United States and currently serves children and families in 12 states across 64 individual locations.
During the winter months of 2018, our team was in contact with key stakeholders from within the organization as they were in the market for some durable and safe wall padding for their location in Woodbridge, Virginia. The location had a specialized playroom for children that had become a slight safety concern as the room contained a variety of corners and pillars that could pose potential hazards for children at play.
In addition to the safety concerns, the walls themselves were subject to a bit of abuse, so the prospect of installing some padding to add protection for the walls was a concern the organization expressed to our team as well.
As with any custom wall-padding project, detailed measurements and drawings were required before our team could begin designing a solution to suit their needs. Once again, we enlisted the help of our partners at Sparks@Play in Virginia, who were immediately on site to provide support to the project. Working closely with stakeholders at the facility, we were quickly provided with detailed drawings, measurements, and imagery directly from the site.
Our design team was fast-acting and was able to get prospective designs completed in time, allowing for all parties involved to sign off on them ahead of production.
Early in the spring of 2018, the padding solution was completed and shipped directly to Children of America in Woodbridge. There, it was welcomed by the team at Sparks@Play who completed the installation seamlessly and on schedule.
Today, the students at this facility can play to their heart’s content in the newly renovated playroom knowing that their safety and protection has been taken into account once again by the good folks at Children of America.
