Preschool classrooms have taken on a new look!
After copious studying of how the environment can serve as a "third teacher" for all children, especially those in early childhood, MC School's early childhood team led in the innovative project of transforming the classrooms, and in the mist redefining the meaning of early childhood and education.
What is our image of the child, and what are we doing to advocate for this image? One of the answers is in our environment.
The space says to the child, "we respect you and your learning process. We want you to be happy, to learn through interactions with others and open exploration."
Resources will also begin to vary as the year goes along, and more unusual materials will appear- also materials that we experiment with children and best serve to express their understanding of the world around them.
This is a dialogue with the environment that is maturing, but will continue throughout our journey. We welcome you all into the adventure as well!
