Criando Espaços de "Sim"

Creating “Yes” Spaces

"Yes" spaces are environments specially designed to promote children's autonomy, exploration and safety. These spaces give children the freedom to move and explore independently without unnecessary restrictions. Want to learn more about how to create “yes” spaces in your home and help encourage your children’s curiosity and healthy development? Come with us.

  1. What are "yes" spaces?
    'Yes' spaces are safe areas adapted to children's needs, where they are allowed to explore and experiment without constant intervention from adults. These spaces are designed with children's age and abilities in mind, providing a safe environment for them to develop independence and confidence in their own abilities.

  2. Promoting autonomy
    When creating “yes” spaces, the main focus is to promote children’s autonomy. This may include the availability of furniture and objects appropriate to the children's size and abilities, such as proportionate tables and chairs, easily accessible shelves, and art materials within reach. These elements enable children to carry out everyday tasks on their own, encouraging their independence and self-confidence.

  3. Safety first
    While “yes” spaces encourage autonomy, safety remains a priority. Make sure spaces are free from dangerous objects or restricted access. Carefully assess possible risks and implement appropriate safety measures, such as shields on electrical outlets, rounded corners and securely securing furniture.
  4. Stimulating creativity and imagination
    "Yes" spaces are ideal for stimulating children's creativity and imagination. Provide materials and toys that allow for free expression, such as crayons, paper, building blocks, costumes, and sensory objects. Encourage children to explore different activities and let their imagination be the guide to play and learning. All the toys at are ideal for children to play and learn in this space.

  5. Flexibility and evolution
    “Yes” spaces must be flexible and able to adapt to children’s growth and changes. As they develop new skills and interests, adjust elements of the space to meet their evolving needs. This may include adding new materials, rearranging furniture, or creating different themed areas.

By creating "yes" spaces in your home, you are providing a nurturing and safe environment for your children to explore, learn and develop independently. By promoting autonomy, creativity, and security, you are cultivating important life-long skills. Invest in the power of “yes” spaces and watch your children blossom with confidence and joy!
