Event description

Description

Gone are the days of primary coloured, sensory overloaded environments for young children. Today we seek a calmer aesthetic, a place where children can focus, where relationships can flourish and where the environment (both indoors and out) is structured to support the teaching and learning program, not to fight against it.

But, what are the components that create todays environments and where are they drawn from? How can we create environments that reflect the diversity, dynamics and ideals of our community? What roles do beauty, nature, challenge and risk play? And, are we in danger of IKEA-ising our environments?

In this workshop you will:

  • Examine and understand how your philosophy and approach to teaching and learning shapes and influences the decisions and choices you make in relation to your environment
  • Explore Intentionality in the design, resourcing and material choices we make for the environment:
    • What are we doing
    • Why are we doing it
    • Who are we doing it for?

  • Understand the role of the environment in learning and relationships
  • Consider how we work with our team, families and community to create truly unique environments (not IKEA showrooms – nothing against IKEA but…)

This workshop meets:

NQS QA1, QA3 and QA7

APST 1.2, 1.3, 3.4, 3.7, 4.2 and 7.3.
