This unit examines and synthesises information about historical and contemporary contextual influences upon the creation of early childhood learning spaces. The unit also analyses the impact that these environments may have on children’s developmental learning outcomes and answers the question of how to create meaningful, rich, contextually appropriate learning spaces for young children. Students will develop ‘ways of seeing’, interpreting, and critically analysing existing environments with a view to generating educational outcomes for a diverse range of children. Applying multiple perspectives and research evidence, students will develop more refined capacities to create effective learning spaces.
