Creating Inspirational Early Learning Environments

Creating environments for learning is more than simple room arrangement.

Well-designed environments that are stimulating and dynamic have these key attributes:

1. They include free space that is open for movement and socializing.

Let the children move and explore based on their own interests and desires within the structure of the space. 

2. They have private quiet spaces. 

Children need space to focus, reflect, or participate in self-directed play on their own.

3. They offer clear, defined areas.

Each area should encourage children to be active participants in their own learning.

4. They are flexible.

Each day is new and different, and the space needs to adapt to the ever changing needs of children.
