Learning Environments

Learning environments are nurturing spaces that support the learning of very young children. EHS programs create a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for infants and toddlers. This includes play spaces, areas for caregiving routines, and outdoor areas. Staff plan ways to integrate home cultures into the environment. They also consider the ways the space can change to support the changing ages, interests, and characteristics of a group of children over time.
