While some providers use a home feel approach and others use a preschool approach I like both. My entry way has a cubby for children to place their belongings. I find they love to put their coats and shoes in there at the beginning of the day. They also like to put any work they have done for the day in their “spots” to show their parents at pick up time. I use my living room and dinning room for the bulk of our day. My living room has the home feel with a couch and rocking chair that the kids love to sit in. My dinning room is where most of the play takes place. There is a kitchen area as well as an art and reading area. I keep toys for my infants on low shelves for easy access for them.
