Gallery 6

Quiet Space

A light lit room with a bookshelf and books, a play rug, a leather couch, two seats and a window looking to the outside garden.

A space to relax, reflect and rejuvenate.

How it works

Quiet Space is removed from the main Mini Q galleries, and contains a few chairs and book resources for reading and reflection.

Things to try or ask around the exhibit

If your child is over stimulated, try to settle down with a storybook or discuss what you have done so far in Mini Q. This will help your child gain more benefit from their activities.


Reading storybooks quietly with children:

  • gives you an opportunity to develop intimacy with your child
  • instils a love of books and reading
  • extends their language and literacy skills and
  • gives you and your child an opportunity to refl ect upon and reinforce your experiences so far.

You are also welcome to read books about child development during this ‘down’ time.
