The Children’s House is a unique feature of the ‘prepared environment’ that every object in the classroom has a specific place and purpose.
The classroom is a child-sized world, with chairs, tables and shelves, in appropriate size.
Our classrooms are large, bright, and beautifully arranged, designed for the child’s comfort, security and enjoyment. The activities are arranged on low shelving units within reach of even the smallest children. Children may work, uninterrupted, for long periods of time at tables or on small mats on the floor where they are naturally comfortable.
The pace is unhurried and although the curriculum is structured, each child moves through it at his or her own pace. The children are free to choose activities which capture their interest, and new activities are introduced as each child is ready for them.
There is also group time with stories, music, songs and finger-plays. The children are encouraged to start expressing themselves during this time.
