Environment as the Third Teacher

In the schools of Reggio Emilia, the environment is thought to act as a “third teacher.” As such, it is highly organized and arranged in such a way that the materials are intentionally placed to inspire and elicit learning. The space is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable, utilizing natural tones and allowing the children to bring the colour to the space. It is an inviting and encouraging space.The classroom is flexible, evolving based on the ongoing interests of the students, inspiring them to partake in learning that is meaningful, authentic, and engaging.
