The way a classroom or childcare space is designed and laid out can have a huge impact on children's learning and behavior. Believe it or not, this can also impact a teacher's ability to perform their duties effectively as well. An effective environment supports children's interaction with the classroom space, materials, and the people within it.
The classroom is a space designed to be not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing and reflective of the child’s learning.
With an effective classroom design, the children in your program are afforded the freedom and ability to move about safely while trying a variety of curriculum activities carefully selected by their teacher.
By having a safe and effective classroom layout, teachers don't have to worry about the children's safety and their ability to successfully maneuver within the classroom. With this extra freedom, classroom teachers can then concentrate on developing activities, observing children, and meeting their individual needs.
Effective environments help children feel invited and welcome to explore and learn.
