Hard seats can cause an issue for focus because they don’t move, and they’re uncomfortable. The issue with a chair’s lack of movement creates a hard surface that does not flow naturally with the body. This is particularly true for younger kids who need regular movement.
When a child is free to move, they can focus on lessons rather than how uncomfortable a seat is. That’s why we recommend a chair like the Virco ZROCK13 – Zuma 13″ Rocker.
Children are having to spend more time sitting than they have in the past. Parents have options for movement in the workplace, but kids have been greatly inhibited in the classroom. Not only are we experiencing problems as a society due to this issue, but children are having a harder time in the classroom from not being able to move around.
Beyond comfort, kids have an excessive amount of energy that needs to be let out at regular amounts of time. However, sitting too long creates issues as well. Movement is needed for blood flow, which is essential for energy and brain activity.
Not only do kids need to get their wiggles out, but they need movement to maintain the amount of energy they have throughout the day and to experience good health. A lack of movement all day impedes learning. Rocking chairs help the learning process because it allows kids to move around in a safe way.
Safety And Comfort
The Virco Zuma rocking chair provides a safe way to rock in a chair. Kids typically like to tip in their chairs, which isn’t safe. The Virco rocking chair has a stopper to prevent children from rocking too far in their seats. The ergonomic design of each rocking chair safely cradles children to allow them to move freely. Each rocking chair encourages better posture as well. Children can sit firmly in their seats, without leaning over, as they rock in their seats.
