Chill Out Zone Kit
$36.00 + postage (AUS only)
A Chill Out Zone at home or in the classroom is a quiet corner or hideout space for use when children are showing signs of overwhelm, fatigue or overexcitement. This quiet space provides a reduced stimulation environment that allows children to calm, relax, re-organise and refocus.
The Chill Out Zone needs to be designed keeping in mind your child/student’s individual needs and ideally set up in collaboration with them, so they can feel ownership and motivation of the space and the tools. The Chill Out Zone should not be used as either reward or punishment.
