A Childcare Centre has an obligation to the children in their care. Managers and staff working in Early Learning Centres strive to take care of their charges' physical, social, educational and emotional needs.
Children need a variety of play and learning opportunities. Without this diversity, there is a breakdown in children's behaviour which can cause them to become loud and disruptive – sometimes as loud as 90 dB(A), which is equal to a Boeing 747 taking off!
A person's ability to decipher sound doesn't develop until their early teenage years. So, if there is too much background noise or the room has echoes, children will struggle to understand instructions and lessons. A misunderstanding at an early education level can have negative long-term impacts on a child's development.
The way hearing develops means children are still learning to interpret sounds at early education and primary education level. This development makes noise control is imperative in an Early Learning Centre to meet children's needs.
Noise control solutions such as acoustic absorption panels like Calando Panel and ECO Wall improve child care centre acoustics, enhancing the sound quality of educational spaces and improving the playing environment.
