Multiple Intelligences

Multiple Intelligences

All Play Loft experiences reflect the many ways children learn. The Theory of Multiple Intelligences describes eight intelligences (featured below) that we all have and use in various combinations to understand, and learn about our world.

In his book, Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, Thomas Armstrong describes the eight intelligences this way (we have also used this information when designing our indoor play facility to assist children ongoing development needs):
