Children are naturally creative, imaginative, and expressive, and because of this, they need creative outlets. This is why daycare and kindergarten administrators find themselves investing in magnetic whiteboard walls for their classrooms. Some classrooms and childcare facilities do not have enough room for desks, open spaces, and play areas to have common collaborative spaces. The introduction of magnetic whiteboard walls allows collaboration and creativity to bloom anywhere. Opti-Rite® allows students to practice fine motor skills through work on vertical surfaces. Play, draw and create on whiteboard walls to support a child’s progress towards dexterity and control.
