A few things that make this daycare stand out from the crowd?
To illustrate how large that indoor playground is, in real estate terms, 8,000 square feet is considered to be a mansion. If you live in Bergen County, this amazing play area is a must see. Complete with a castle for dress-up and pretend play, a rock-climbing wall, huge slides, a jumbo screen for dance games, and a party room that doubles as a music room, parents often say that their children have NO problem with separation anxiety at this facility. Drop off is in a children’s utopia.
Adults can have a great time in this space as well (the play space is open on the weekend). JumpinJax boasts a café, an air hockey table and massage chairs for parents and guardians.
Other notable attributes of the program include:
JumpinJax’s Owner Steven Song and his wife Joohee of D3 Big Interior Design are well versed in the psychology of color and used their passion and knowledge to create the entire play space and preschool in one. Mr. Song gives the following “color psychology” insight into the reasons they used certain colors throughout their facility:
“Our facility is very colorful, yet comes together very nicely. No colors clash with each other. There are no harsh colors either,” adds Mr. Song.
“Colour, it’s one of the most noticeable attributes of the world around us. For babies and small children, understanding colour is an essential building block they will use for learning in all areas of their life. So when it comes to designing kids’ spaces, colour is one of the most important elements to consider. Not only does colour play an important role in the overall aesthetic of a space, it can also impact an individual’s mood, emotional wellbeing, productivity, learning and behavior,”.says Vanessa Kettlewell of houzz.com.
In addition to the strategic colors, JumpinJax’s spacious and well-appointed classrooms feature LED lighting and air purification systems. LED lighting not only lowers the costs of energy, but also provides a safer environment for the children than incandescent lighting. LED lighting transmits almost no heat while incandescent is generally hot to the touch. The air purification systems eliminate virtually all allergens in the classrooms.
