Baby Purple Dragons

For children 2.5 to 3.5 years of age.


The Baby “Purple” Dragons classroom is painted a lovely shade of lavender which suggests refinement along with grace and elegance.


Shades of purple have a special relationship with nature, and this classroom looks out into the garden. The use of lavender signifies balance and allows the children to know they are unique and special. It can calm the mind and encourage creativity.
