Creating inviting environments is important for any classroom space. Using a variety of textures, fabrics, colours and materials helps to create an environment that is visually appealing and engaging, but also calming and restful. The learning environment should be comfortable and welcoming for children, parents and educators. Young children respond differently, based on the design, the types of resources, and the materials used in each space. An effectively designed classroom has the potential to positively influence all areas of a child’s development.
