Improving acoustics in an extracurricular care facility
Busy children in combination with hard floors and walls often have poor acoustics as a result in an extracurricular care facility. Acoustic solutions reduce reverberation. Less reverberation makes children calmer, less tired and has a positive influence on a child's development. Acoustic challenges:
very low reverberation time;
reduced sound level;
better speech intelligibility.
The advantages of good acoustics in an extracurricular care facility
Many extracurricular care facilities are located in high monumental buildings with many hard walls, floors and ceilings. This does not benefit the acoustics. When redecorating a extracurricular care facility, we often see that acoustic materials are removed, avoided and not added. The advantages of good acoustics in a extracurricular care facility:
Noise is bad for the mood. Processing stimuli costs a lot of energy in small children and they become irritated and tired more quickly.
Too much noise can lead to confusing and stressful situations or children can be overlooked. This can result in a counsellor acting less adequately and intervening incorrectly.
Better development of children
Less fatigue, more rest. Improved intelligibility so that the message is better received by children. All this together is positive for the development of children. Happy teachers, pupils and parents.
Good acoustics also lead to less stress and fatigue for supervisors. Ultimately resulting in less absence due to illness.
