There seems to be a nursery on every corner in Kuwait, and yet none of them had everything I wanted for my child. As a teacher, I’d researched some of the top nursery programs in the world and fallen in love with the Reggio-Emilia approach. The primary schools in this small, Italian town cater to the unique needs of the community and students. Children construct their own understanding of the world around them through literal construction with blocks, clay, sand and water. They represent their ideas with painting, photography, film, dance, music and theatre. And most importantly, they play! They play outdoors in the grass and dirt; they climb and swing; they play pretend and they play out real life scenarios. This rich and stimulating environment is what I wanted for my child, and when I couldn’t find it, I created it.

The Kuwait Reggio Center brings all of the above from Reggio-Emilia, Italy to Mansouriya, Kuwait. KRC is an inquiry-based, child-centered nursery where curiosity is the curriculum. Children explore the classroom to find what interests them. Maybe they will learn to compare sizes and shapes in the block area, or choose to learn colors and fine motor skills in the art space. They can build literacy skills cuddled up with a book in the reading loft, or expand their vocabulary through dramatic play. Outside the classroom, the central piazza allows them to perfect their gross motor skills in the soft play obstacle course or move to a rhythm created in the music corner. They also have the chance to play with light, sound and touch in the sensory room, or calm their senses and focus on their breath in yoga class.

It’s not all pretend-play, the children have real work to do! They cook up snacks in our custom built kitchen using food from the school garden. They create works of art using diverse media from modeling clay to woodwork. They reduce, reuse and recycle in our recycling center. Their artwork, dialogue and photos decorate the walls so that the children know their work is meaningful.

Learning takes place outside the walls of KRC too. There is a playground where they can swing and slide, a sand and water section where they are allowed to get messy, a large track where they can pedal, scoot, and drive, and an open field where they can run through the grass or rest under the shady tree.

They can do all of this safely because the children are supported by well-educated, caring, vigilant, and certified teachers who extend and foster the students’ creativity. Parents are also invited to participate in their children’s education because parents are a child’s first and most important teachers.

I am a parent first, and Kuwait Reggio Center is the nursery I built for my children. If you think it might be the right school for your child, find out more at our website www.kuwaitreggiocenter.com or request a tour by contacting admissions@kuwaitreggiocenter.com or 98747518.

Sponsored: Wafra Wind Tower Project

Post by Sponsor

Project Name: Wind Tower
Type: Housing | 6,500 sqm
Location: Salmiya, Behind Laila Gallery
Develoer: Wafra Real Estate Co.

Awards:
– A’Design Awards 2012 – Silver A’Design Award “Architecture, Building and Structure Design Category – Residential Complex”
– International Property Awards (IPA) 2011 – Highly Commended at Arabian Residential Property Awards “High Rise Architecture”

Wafra Wind Tower introduces a new concept to urban living that adapts to the evolving lifestyle of 21st Century contemporary Kuwait. Considering the increasing demand for land in the city, the transformation of single family dwelling typologies becomes a must, where tenants should be able to enjoy privacy as well as benefit from vertical solution amenities and prime location. 13 unique apartment are now ready to rented as the new tenant can enjoys all the facilities and amenities provided in the tower.

Understanding and reinterpreting local environmental techniques is one of the main targets of this design. The services core of the building is thus located on the southern wing, in order to minimize sun exposure and consequently reduce energy consumption – acting as a thermal barrier to the rest of the building. Hence, minimum openings are placed on the aforementioned façade, while on the other hand the building opens to the North, facing the sea and enjoying its privileged views. Optimal opportunities for natural lighting and cross ventilation also become an essential driving force for the design, which give the tower its character and determine its final orientation. Taking the idea of the traditional middle-eastern courtyard typology and developing it volumetrically, the initial concept flourishes in the form of the tower. The courtyard is no longer constrained to the core of the building; instead, it borrows light and ventilation from the facade, funnels it through the pool area and flows through all levels finding its way out through the opposite façade.

Granite stone is chosen for the façade, in order to give the tower an aspect of a monolithic sculpture that is carved by the wind, in contrast with the smooth surfaces of the interior courtyard that are rendered in white plaster.

Functionally and geometrically, the tower is raised on a plinth that comprises 2 levels, where public spaces – including swimming pool and gym area – are located. The apartments rise up organically and allow for light and ventilation to penetrate through. Full tower height is 13 levels. An extra penthouse crowns the building, including rooftop gardens and terraces that are advantageously profited.
