A Learning Environment. . . learning is not necessarily the 123's and ABC's, but it is important to learn honesty. The learning of respect, kindness, self-reliance, self-respect, self-help skills, self-soothing skills, what is expected of them and guidelines and potential self-discipline and moderation, the values of being; honest, dependable, show love, sensitivity to others, kindness, fairness and friendliness are the values of giving and forgiving.

My role as a teacher is to encompass preparations for the classroom environment, in order to provide optimal pro- social learning experiences. To promote a comprehensive all-inclusive curriculum that enhances the development of prosocial skills. To be a person a child can come to and trust that I will be there for them.

All activities Art/Crafts, Science, Music/movement and so on are based on Social, Emotional, Physical, Emotional Literacy and Cognitive learning.

Planned activities and a large environment exclusively for child care business use promote many types of multicultural and diverse learning. Based on authentic individuals instead of a "tourist curriculum" Stereotypes of any personal characteristic is left out. . .Boys and girls take part in all activities and have equal time to use all age appropriate materials. Curriculum is a form of Holistic teaching and Integrated instead of being focused, on one certain area of development at a time. For example, I will facilitate a preschooler(s) who is participating in a particular hobby or interest, project that may take longer to explore and last a day or weeks.
