This workshop will examine how the early learning environment shapes the experiences we offer children. An environment that provides interesting materials and aesthetically pleasing surroundings speaks to the values we hold about our role as teachers and about the children who are entrusted in our care. Anita Rui Olds said, “Children are miracles. Believing that every child is a miracle can transform the way we design for children’s care.” In this workshop we will look at how teachers can do simple things to make their practice more enriching. The Early Learning Framework will be woven into our discussion.
