Being Child Centered

Course Number
It is not about play eliminating order, it’s about letting play flourish and thus optimizing order by minimizing it.” – Shephard Siegel, PhD. In this professional development session, we are going to dive into the 9 attributes of a child-centered environment. This is a face-to-face training. 

 4.4 a. Designs an environment to include:
- personal space for each child to ensure his/her sense of belonging and security
 - both active and quiet spaces
 - large muscle activity and movement spaces
 - adequate space for walkways, as well as gathering and work spaces
 - clear boundaries in the physical environment that help children know where centers begin and end
 - appropriate child-sized furniture
 - unobstructed views of all areas within the space
 - space for child selected grouping
 - space that is inviting to families
 - private meeting space
4.4 b. Maintains a space that is clean, organized, and free of clutter
4.4 c. Selects materials that foster discovery, inquiry, imagination, creativity, and actively support a variety of goals
