The environment speaks, and it speaks of many things.  It can speak of care and nurturance, or it can speak of despair and thoughtlessness. In this webinar, we will explore how educators working in an infant's room can set up an environment for infants, including what resources may be needed, how the environment can link to learning and how to create a memory palace for infants.  We will traverse the wonderful world of beauty and aesthetics, and you will be left wanting to create beautiful spaces for infants.
