Learning Centers

The environment impacts everything that happens in an early childhood classroom. It influences what will be learned, what will be accomplished, what choices are made, and how children behave. It affects the teacher’s attitude and interactions that occur throughout the day. How can a wonderful place be created to maximize children and teacher’s positive interactions, celebrating each child’s contribution, while supporting their need for play? Look inside “real” classrooms to discover how it looks, how areas are arranged, where things are stored, how choices are displayed, and how long term projects are saved. See how each classroom is unique and influenced by both the children’s and teachers’ interest. Learn how to make your classroom special, aesthetically pleasing, supportive/ challenging, and function effectively so you and your children can live together in a harmonious way.
