The way your physical environment is set up sends powerful messages to the infants and toddlers in your care. What messages does your physical environment convey to young children? Are they positive messages of security, trust, comfort, and belonging? Does it offer children the freedom to move and explore? This podcast focuses on the concept of environmental messages, how the physical environment impacts relationships between children and adults, and offers strategies and suggestions for creating and sustaining environments that convey positive messages.
