Young children’s natural curiosity and energetic imaginations can lead to stimulating learning opportunities All classrooms provide guided play experiences along with opportunities for unstructured play to support children’s knowledge in key areas and their lifelong enjoyment and pursuit of learning.
Building peer interaction skills allows children to successfully interact with one another, such as sharing, taking turns, asking for assistance, and helping one another. Classrooms are arranged to create physical and socially environments that can help promote peer interaction among all children.
Research has shown that a smaller ratio of staff-to-children in childcare settings is a consistent predictor of outcomes. Children are more likely to experience better care, have developmentally appropriate activities, and a better quality of interactions with caregivers. Low staff-to-child ratios are found in all ESRW classrooms.
