Why Our Process Works
Meaningful transformation occurs through collaboration, reflection, and mentoring. For this reason, all environment designs come with training and one-to-one mentoring between our team and the participating educators. Relationships are the foundation for all learning and are essential for meaningful transformation.
Participating educators and staff will learn to take theories about Loose Parts, teaching, observing, and inquiring and integrate them into their practice and classrooms. This practical application is essential for effective transformation.
Found objects offer abundant play possibilities. Rocks, sticks, hair rollers, buttons, cardboard tubes are open-ended materials that all children use differently. We believe that Loose Parts significantly increase children's play potential and imaginations.
We believe that children should interact with the natural world. Mud, sticks, grass, water, rocks are aesthetically pleasing materials. Our designs emphasize natural elements and surroundings of each program's community.
