Book: Designs for Living and Learning: Transforming EC Environments

Book title:
Designs for Living and Learning: Transforming Early Childhood Environments

Author: Deb Curtis, and Margie Carter

Publication Date: 2003
Publisher: Readleaf Press, MN United States

So recently in the last few months, I've been working with a new childcare employer, I shall call Employer O., or EO for short. They aren't an recruitment agency, and shall be deemed as such.

After having been to a number of their campuses, I've had a feel of how their different schools prepare their environment. 

I found this book a couple of months back, in March, and only remembered now that I had wrote a short post on it. 

When I saw this book, Designs for Living and Learning, at the TAFE library, I thought it was an apt moment to borrow it. 

Notes taken from this text: 

Elements to consider when planning EC spaces:
- Connections and a sense of belonging
- Flexible space and open ended materials 
- Wonder, curiosity, and intellectual engagement 
- Symbolic representations, literacy, and the visual arts.

Pg21: The lives of today's children are filled with plastic, concrete, metal, electronic media, and other materials
