Learning Bays


 Share

Recommended Posts

We had a big dicussion today about possibly changing our nursery room layouts so that they were not under the six areas of learning but organised in a different way. We want to look at the resources so that they provide an environment that promotes sustained thinking and provokes children's learning.

 

I know some places that have studio/workshop/discovery learning bays etc.

 

How do you organise your nursery class/school settings? what areas have you got?

 

We are looking for some good ideas that people have tried and they know has worked for them.

That seems like an awful lot of areas! we want to try to reduce the amount of areas if possible. Is it working for you?

We feel we have too much stuff out for children that is not open ended enough. We also want to make it easier (if its possible?) at tidy up time.
