The classroom is a child-sized world with chairs, tables and shelves, all appropriately sized. It is a unique feature of the ‘prepared environment’ that every object in the classroom has a specific place and purpose.
Our classrooms are large, bright and beautifully arranged, designed for the child’s comfort, security and enjoyment. The activities are arranged on low shelving units within reach of even the smallest children.
They may work, uninterrupted for long periods of time at tables or on small mats on the floor where they are naturally comfortable. The place is unhurried and although the curriculum is structured each child moves through it at his or her own place. The children are free to choose activities which capture their interest and new activities are introduced as each child is ready for them.
