All WonderKnooks feature a custom designed piece reflective of the unique communities within Kent County to encourage imaginative play, and loose parts play to encourage the participation of adult caregivers, leading to rich language interactions.
Here's what people are saying!
"I like how accessible it is, safety-wise. My new walker confidently walked right through the bridge!" Denise, caregiver
"The kids’ area at Ada is great for imaginative play! Kids make up their own stories, playing both together and independently. And the new play piece is exciting!" Michelle, parent and former teacher
"The play area is great for multi-age families. All kids love forts and structures to play in. I also love the open design." Terri, parent
"My kids adore the new Ada Bridge playspace! The design is eye-catching and whimsical, yet simple enough for a child to use their imagination. During our short visit, the bridge became a house, a unicorn stable and even a puppet studio. I'm sure it will be put to use by many creative young minds for years to come." Becca, parent
"I’ve seen marvelous storytelling through play, especially with puppets and loose parts. Blocks become food for animals or building materials for habitats and more! Imaginary fishing off the covered bridge began immediately in our new playspace.” Liz, Librarian at the Amy Van Andel Library
