Component by component, your early childhood program is coming together. This week, you added to your knowledge by reading Chapters 6 and 9 in your text and reflecting on the early childhood facility. For this assignment, reflect on what you have learned about creating quality learning environments.
Create a brochure that describes your program to potential clients (parents) through graphics and words.
Design a trifold, six-panel brochure that depicts the following:
Formalize the physical layout of your center in a floor plan graphic that includes the classroom, play, and support spaces. (Remember to include easily supervised restrooms and planning/meeting spaces for adult personnel.)
Plan for furnishings and learning equipment and justify how your design and plan supports developmentally appropriate practices.
Explain how the total environment is in alignment with your program’s proposed vision, mission, and philosophy, and directly supports the growth and development of children.
Include graphics and images to support your presentation.
Choose an appropriate software program to create your brochure, but if you use a specialized graphics program, be sure to save your document in a portable format such as a .PDF or a .JPEG before submitting it to your Instructor. You must be able to paste it into a document for this activity and the Signature Assignment.
References: Support your brochure with a minimum of three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
