Light Boxes – The Ultimate Light Table Guide

The Ultimate Light Table Guide

A lightbox is a versatile tool that can be used for everything from open-ended play experiences to arts and crafts, to teaching academic concepts and more! Generally, it is used to explore objects with the added dimension of an upward-facing light. It is brilliant for investigation and experimenting. There is an extensive selection to choose from, including light panels, mood light shapes, and light tables. Or you can even make your own!

There are hundreds of possibilities for lightbox play and learning ideas and it is suitable for children of all ages, supporting their holistic development. It can be used for almost any type of activity as its’ most effective benefit is the fact that it creates an inviting learning space and encourages children to engage in learning activities through play without even realizing it.

If planned effectively the lightbox can become a center of learning and appeal to children, whose attention we struggle to grasp. When you infuse your light table center with opportunities for science, maths, literacy, and mark-making it quickly becomes a powerhouse of learning.

Early childhood years are a crucial phase in the development of children into mature, responsible, and well-rounded individuals. We noticed the dire state of preschool and childcare management tools in 2014 and immediately set out to change that. By 2015, we had released Parent, an ultra-fast, super-easy, and delightfully feature-rich preschool management app. Parent™ brings efficiency and speed to your childcare management while saving you, the parents, and the children invaluable time.

Currently, Parent™ is a lead childcare management software. Our platform has been embraced by childcare providers across seven countries, supports multiple languages and curriculums. We are committed to creating positive partnerships between parents and their childcare center, allowing you, as educators, to spend more time nurturing each child in your care.
