HOW RENT-A-THEME ENTERTAINMENT’S ENRICHING PLAY EXPERIENCES CAN BENEFIT YOUR STUDENTS
Play is a fully immersive sensory experience that inspires imagination and creativity. The benefits of play in childhood development are limitless, as confirmed by thousands of scientific articles. When you bring Rent-A-Theme Entertainment to your educational facility, your students will learn valuable social skills, develop their motor skills, and learn how to think critically and creatively. Introducing new, hands-on learning opportunities to your Denver area educational facility will bring with it a host of benefits, including:
- Increased focus, attention to detail, engagement, and communication in the classroom
- Improved emotional regulation and other mental health benefits
- Increased productivity and academic success
- Opportunities for community engagement through parent participation
- And many more!
Colorado’s youth are grappling with a mental health crisis as suicide continues to affect our Denver area communities. Suicide is the leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24 in Colorado, underscoring the urgent need to address mental health concerns in children.
Our play experiences offer enrichment activities that foster empathy and boost optimism, creating a sense of belonging among students, parents, and teachers alike. These strong community bonds contribute to improved social and emotional well-being for everyone involved in play.
Play goes beyond age, gender, culture, and race; it’s inherently inclusive and inviting, promoting equity and ensuring every child can participate and have fun. And parents can join in on the excitement too!
R.A.T.E. play experiences are perfect for:
- Team-building Field Days
- Student Engagement
- STEAM Family Nights
- And countless others!
Allowing your students to explore our immersive play experiences without inhibition can also help them learn about science, math, and engineering. R.A.T.E. is a proud member of the STEM Education Coalition, whose mission is to promote and improve STEM education across the country. Since half of K-12 students perform below their grade level in one or more subjects, it’s more important than ever to spark an interest in STEM early on. Introducing STEM concepts to K-12 students with our engaging and hands-on activities can improve academic success in science and math. Several of R.A.T.E’s play experiences, including Block Party, Blue Adventures, and Science FX, allow students to explore various STEM concepts through fun, grade-appropriate activities, making them the perfect addition to a STEM night. Let us help you cultivate academic success for every student through the joy of play!
not all entertainment is created equal. PLAY BIG!
RENT-A-THEME ENTERTAINMENT BRINGS THE FIELD TRIP TO YOU!
Let Rent-A-Theme bring an on-site field trip experience to your Denver Area school. Safety is paramount for all of us, making on-site experiences a wise choice. With Rent-A-Theme Entertainment’s on-site play experiences, we assist effectively in managing and addressing various transportation and safety considerations. Therefore, making hands-on learning both enjoyable and hassle-free!
When the field trip is on-site at your school:
- Your school already has safety guidelines in place, and both students and staff are familiar with emergency procedures within your school premises.
- Your front office enforces visitor policies and follows safety protocols in the familiar school environment.
- All necessary medications and emergency information are easily accessible.
- The risk of a child getting lost is minimized.
These reassurances are challenging to replicate off-site.
Another remarkable benefit of bringing the field trip experience to your school is cost-effectiveness. By bringing these exciting experiences to your school, you eliminate the need for extra supervision and significantly reduce expenses on fuel and transportation. It’s a budget-friendly way to provide enriching experiences for your students.
The reasons to include Rent-A-Theme Entertainment’s play experiences are numerous and backed by research. According to one study, over 80% of information taught through hands-on techniques is retained. Furthermore, an impressive 91% of teachers believe that hands-on learning contributes to enjoyment in learning, which in turn improves academic success.
R.A.T.E.’s hands-on approach, combined with the understanding that children learn best in a familiar environment, allows us to fully leverage these learning opportunities, making our play experiences truly effective.
