Young children need space to use materials, explore, create, and solve problems, space to move about, spread out, talk freely and space to work alone or with others. An active learning environment is designed to support the types of play that young children enjoy.
This interactive workshop explores strategies for arranging active learning settings. Participants will engage in group discussions and hands-on activities to assess environments in terms of active learning. Along with facilitators they will identify strategies on how to arrange toys, materials and equipment into specific learning settings and how to establish routines which flow smoothly from one interesting experience to another while supporting children’s interests.
