Review:

My agency manages a large NAEYC accreditation facilitation project . We have used the book, Inspiring Spaces for Young Children and the Rosie Observation Scale for Inspiring Environments for training and technical assistance to inform project participants of the important ways design and the aesthetics of the classroom environment affect the overall learning experienced by the children in their care. Using the design principles, they assess their own space, and tie outcomes to meeting accreditation requirements. We have used the book and the Rosie Scale to assist over 40 providers to become NAEYC accredited since 2011. We consider it to be an essential tool for our work. --Sherry L. Trebus, Child Care Policy and Quality Assurance Manager, TX

When you open the resource book Inspiring Spaces for Young Children, you can t help but want to transform your classroom immediately. The unique and beautiful images paint a picture of an environment that is esthetically pleasing and comforting to be in. The authors have balanced the layout of the book with just the right amount of pictures and information to give you a starting place to imagine your own inspiring environment. They have suggested ideas to use what you already have in new ways, and then tossed in a bit of nature, authentic pieces, art and culture. A perfect recipe for an inspired classroom! --Jody Martin, VP Education and Training, Creme de la Creme
