The Impact of Physical Settings on Pre-Schoolers Classroom Organization
Tadjic, Mirko; Martinec, Miroslav; Farago, Amalija
Online Submission, European Journal of Education Studies v1 n1 p14-36 Sep 2015
The physical setting plays an important role in the lives of pre-schoolers and can be an important component of children's experience and development when it is wisely and meaningfully designed. The classroom organization enhances and supports the pre-schooler capability to perform activities himself, initiate and finish tasks, creates the possibility of his own determined choices and responsibilities, permits to connect and interrelate with educators and other participants easily and helps to improve his cognitive skills. In this research, the classroom environment is approached in terms of diverse aspects, as a relation between physical atmosphere and the curriculum philosophy, the planning of proceedings, adjustments, safekeeping topics and assignment of zones, equipment resources, illumination, surfaces and other environmental factors.
