Drawing inspiration from a variety of approaches?from Waldorf to Montessori to Reggio to Greenman, Prescott and Olds?the authors outline hundreds of ways to create healthy and inviting physical, social and emotional environments for children in child care. Full-colour photographs of actual early childhood programs demonstrate that the spaces where children learn and grow can be comfortable for children, teachers and parents alike.
