The environment is divided into areas that are intended
to help focus the child’s attention and interests:
The living/playing area
Shelves with carefully chosen activities that will match
the developmental stages of the child. Shelves are rich with
materials to encourage language development, art, music, and
manipulative play. Everything is designed to help the child refine
skills that are based on real-life activities.
The personal care space
Focus on practical life skills, learning to be independent, to be
independent and personal hygiene. We work on independent dressing
and undressing skills, and may introduce toileting.
The eating area
Includes a place for the children to help with preparation of the
food they will eat. This area is rich in language, sensory input and
real experiences, with real tools, for a real purpose.
A place to rest
Quietly and peacefully while reading a book.
