The space and materials in our environment are carefully chosen to facilitate and encourage various play variations.  Space is allocated for interest areas that are fitted to reflect the children’s interests. General guidelines are shared with teachers on setting up the learning centres and its materials. Open-ended materials — materials that can be used in a variety of ways, such as blocks in all sizes, art materials, and fabric pieces and recycled materials, such as shells, rocks, used containers, egg cartons etc are just some of the “raw materials” for play. This is aligned to our green initiatives and teachers are encouraged and given time to plan these centres using recycleable and common household items. Such knowledge is also shared with families as these ideas could be similalry practised at home.
