In the first three years of life children go through the most intensive period of brain development they will ever experience in their lifespan. In order to capitalize on this critical period of development very young children need to be in supportive, nurturing and engaging environments. In this workshop participants explore how to design dynamic and interactive learning environments. Together, we explore beautiful programs and activities created by other educators, share our own success stories and brainstorm new ideas. Participants review the benefits of frequently adapting the environment and materials; how to adjust the flow of the program in response to child needs and learn strategies to re-evaluate their practice.
