Learning Environments

Learning Environments

The physical space in early childhood settings plays a significant role in learning and development. Environments should welcome children and family members. Furniture, equipment, play materials and supplies can be organized to spark children's curiosity, and enrich their explorations and interactions. Environments should also reflect the unique needs of children enrolled, and the cultural and linguistic diversity of the community.
