How you arrange your preschool classroom can have a big impact on the children’s learning, safety, and behavior. When it is done well, the overall atmosphere in the classroom is calmer and more focused. The children are more actively focused on learning. It is easier to supervise the children properly. There are fewer behavior problems. This course will review the basic learning centers that should be included in a developmentally appropriate preschool classroom and tips on room arrangement to support safety and behavior.
