What’s it about
This workshop is a two part series. The environment is the most visible aspect of the work of early childhood educators. It conveys a message that this is a place where adults and children have thought carefully about the quality and the intention of the places and spaces designed especially for play and learning.
Embracing the idea of the environment as a significant educator in our early childhood programs can inspire our thinking and planning beyond the notion of a room arrangement ….. to exploring the possibilities for including the particular values and beliefs we want to communicate throughout this environment.
