Successful Learning Spaces: A Transforming Guide for Parents and Educators will motivate you to create environments, big and small, sure to accent any child’s individual formula for learning. This guide is not only a great resource for early childhood educators, but parents, support staff, and child care centers. You’ll gain hundreds of easy and useful ideas, projects, techniques, tricks, and tips for revamping any space into one that stimulates and welcomes learning. And discover the power of the physical environment to affect a child’s learning.


Successful Learning Spaces outlines strategies and implementation ideas for everything from the music played, smells ignited, discipline enforced, seating arranged, materials used, and traffic flow to aid in achieving an optimal learning environment. The simple instructions and clear illustrations come from research and the personal success of the author, who revamped her sterile classroom with awkward seating and overheated play areas to create a positive environment, resulting in raised student assessment scores, reduced discipline problems, and boosted enthusiasm for class participation.

Overcome barriers and frustrations to achieving classroom dream designs and, ultimately, provide children vibrant, successful, and magical places to grow, learn and play!
