Yesterday was World Environment Day. My colleague, Francis Joseph, shared this image on his Facebook page.
I love this quote and reflected also on how quickly we change our setting environments without considering whether the change will have a positive impact on children’s learning and development. How does the change mirror the setting’s ethos/values? Are we changing just because it’s trendy to do so? Are there links to evidence, practice and/or research?
A case in point: children can experience the benefits of mud without a mud kitchen!
