I feel that sharing space within our environment is inevitable. we have to share a dining area, kitchen and restroom, but we have a dedicated learning environment for the children to develop comfort and routine play in. I think this is what works best for us as a childcare setting as well as what works great for our family.
I work closely with Sandra Cole and that has opened my eyes to a less is more approach to my setting. I see the beginnings and where she is now and hope to emulate that in my program as well.
