Setting the Stage for Learning: Room Arrangement as a Teaching Strategy
An early childhood environment is many things: It’s a safe place where children are supervised, and a place where important activities of the day take place, such as playing, eating, sleeping, washing hands, and going to the bathroom. Beyond these basics, however, an environment for young children sets the stage for learning. A well-run classroom promotes learning, helps build a classroom community, and frees teachers to observe and interact with children in positive ways. This training presents concrete ideas for arranging your learning environment.
