Designs for Living and Learning: Transforming Early Childhood Environments
Give children wondrous places to learn and grow! Drawing inspiration from a variety of approaches--from Waldorf to Montessori to Reggio to Greenman, Prescott, and Olds--the authors outline hundreds of ways to create healthy and inviting physical, social, and emotional environments for children in child care. Full-color photographs of actual early childhood programs demonstrate that the spaces children learn and grow in can be comfortable for children, teachers, and parents alike.
