Through a Child’s Eyes: How Classroom Design Inspires Wonder
 
A big part of classroom management is managing the physical environment. You will want to think strategically when setting up the classrooms; for example, ensuring that the teacher can see all students at all times, considering the flow of traffic for different classroom activities, and considering how to set up interest areas to maximize student engagement. Children learn best in an environment where they can explore, experience, and interact.
 
When you think about designing spaces for young children you need to first consider the equipment and its arrangement and then move on to the flooring, quiet and active areas, and the locations of the interest centers as well as doors and windows. But in addition, you will want to reframe your perspective and view your classroom in new and unique ways by using color and texture to define space.
