Offering inspiration and guidance on creating culturally sensitive and culturally sustainable early childhood environments. With the help of over 400 full-color photos this book guides readers to use their environment to promote a sense of wonder, curiosity, and joy, and allow children to explore their identity. This book analyzes environment design through six key terms: aesthetic--the nature of art and beauty; authenticity--avoiding stereotypical and biased assumptions; equity-achieving equal outcomes by the individualizing support for each child; dynamic--always changing and supporting children's critical thinking; praxis--actioned informed by theory; and critical reflection--the on-going process of consideration, analysis and informed decision-making applied to daily work. Paperback. 280 pages.
