When designing the rooms at First Learning Australia, we carefully selected the colours used on the walls and décor after researching the psychological effects that a colour has on a child.
The floors at First Learning Australia are a blonde timber colour, providing a neutral palette to start with.
We have chosen to use grey for the walls and elements of the décor, as gray has a calming and relaxing effect when used with warm tones and bright colours.
Each room has an accent colour that we believe will assist the children in feeling at home, welcomed and calm as well aiding their learning journey.
Our youngest room has been designed to include a black and white colour scheme. The best way to stimulate a baby’s vision is using black and white contrasting colours. Research has proven that black and white contrasts register powerfully on baby’s retina and send the strongest visual signals to baby’s brain. Stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster visual development.
Guragura and Garraway
Green is said to have a soothing effect on the body and mind and to reduce anxiety in children. Green also symbolizes nature, creating a calm and serene environment. Exposure to the color green may even increase reading ability and speech development.
Budgiwung and Badagarang
The colour blue decreases feelings of anxiety and aggression and lowers blood pressure and heart rates. Children who experience tantrums or other behavioral problems may appreciate the soothing effects of a blue room. We thought that this colour was perfect for the 2-3 year olds.
Orange is a warm, friendly and youthful color that is great for children since it’s said to encourage confidence, extroversion and independence. The social nature of this color also puts children and their friends at ease, inspiring communication and cooperation.
We have chosen green for the accent colour in our library. As well as the calming and soothing effect green has, there has been a study done that found that exposure to the color green may even increase reading ability.
Lounge Rooms and Wulaba
Most people associate yellow with feelings of happiness and cheerfulness. When used in small doses, this bright and cheery color is said to assist with motivation and increased memory, and softer yellows with aiding concentration.
Betty, Brucey, Harley and Natalia are our much loved pet chickens. Raised by the Simons family, they are friendly members of the First Learning Family. The chickens love to have visitors bring them yummy snacks, and in return lay plenty of eggs for the children to collect.
Betty is a Silkie chicken, with white soft feathers. She is the boss, and will let everyone know it with her loud chattering! She lays small white eggs and is happy to raise our baby chicks when given the chance.
Brucey is a Isabrown chicken. She is the larger of the two Isabrowns, and is a little more shy than Harley. She will warm up to you after a few visits, but likes to stand at a distance. Brucey lays large brown eggs.
Harley is a Isabrown chicken. She is the friendliest of the chickens, eager to come and say hello, and will let you pat her while she eats. She lays large brown eggs.
Natalia is our chicken. She is white in colour, and lays medium sized brown eggs. She is a cheeky chicken who is always on the move!
Some Fun Facts:
- Each chicken has it’s own quirky and unique personality.
- Their favourite snack is a serving of soaked oats, hand fed using a wooden spoon
- Our chicken’s have great memories, so be kind because they will remember you!
