EDUC 6104 - Engaging Environments


(3 sem. cr.)
Early childhood environments have the power to invite learning, foster curiosity, and empower meaning-making. Such environments offer spaces for children to be quiet and introspective as well as interact in robust play. The aesthetics of early childhood environments can nurture children’s appreciation of the many aspects of beauty, while the soul and feel of environments can help children and families be comfortable with who they are. In this course, early childhood professionals analyze the role of the environment as the third teacher, the ways early childhood environments support community and belonging, and the value of leading early childhood teams to create effective early childhood environments that nurture discovery, wonder, and awe. 

(This course requires 10 hours of field experience focused on developing and taking part in meaningful learning experiences in an infant/toddler, preschool or K-3 setting.)
