Building a Classroom Environment That Stimulates Early Learning
For many children, attending preschool or kindergarten is their first real exposure to a formal learning environment. They might be transitioning from home for the very first time, and as you can imagine, they might be overwhelmed when they first walk into a classroom.
This is why the design of the learning space is very important. The right kind of physical environment can help children transition into learning at the start of the day. Release from the caregiver into the care of another adult is significant. Children often have separation anxiety, and the learning environment can support this transition in a healthy way.
