Preschoolers need a quiet space, too
In an earlier post, I shared some information from the Early Childhood Consultation Partnership© (ECCP) about the need and benefits of creating a quiet space for infants and toddlers in a child care setting. Now I'd like to share some additional information from ECCP on ways to incorporate a quiet space in a preschool classroom.
What kinds of things do you put in your "cozy corner" or "quiet space"?
