At Wacky World, we are committed to designing all of our spaces with inclusive essentials in mind. We believe our themed environments should be aesthetically pleasing and inspire imagination and creativity, but also make everyone feel welcome and included!
Inclusive Design Essentials
We prioritize and plan model inclusive play environments by providing a robust variety of activities and design features that address the physical, social-emotional, sensory, cognitive, and communicative needs of all children, including those with disabilities. These inclusive essentials align with evidence-based design best practices to break down both physical barriers for access and social barriers to participate.
Music & Sound
Encourages collaboration, creativity and age-appropriate activities for multigenerational users at any developmental stage
Encourages imagination, creativity, symbolic thinking, and social dialogue through pretend play
Include artwork that celebrates differences and embraces diversity. Create awareness by including characters of various race, gender, age, ethnicity, culture, and ability
Encourages language skills through motivating, collaborative and reciprocal activities with friends and family
Supports intuitive play patterns so that children can successfully engage in repetitive, active play to develop skills
Active vs Passive Play
Enhances play experiences through well-organized, easy-to-recognize areas while avoiding user conflict
Strategically use color, patterns, textures, and pictures as visual cues to help organize activity areas so the environment is easy to understand
Allows diverse users, adaptive equipment, and caregivers access to social and physical play throughout the environment.
Sensory walls, activity panels, and music provide fun and often surprising experiences and encourage learning through discovery and exploration
Jump In Point
Offers passive areas for children to observe and understand the play activity prior to participating and helps draw them into active play
Offers quiet or semi-enclosed places, such as under the deck or crawl tubes, where children can seek sensory relief and retreat until ready to engage in play
Activities with Comfortable Reach
Provides adequate space underneath the panel to allow individuals using mobility devices to comfortably reach play activities while facing forward
