The ‘Reggio Emilia’ approach refers to the environment as the ‘third teacher’. A great deal of attention is given to the look and feel of the places utilized by the children. Carers organise environments and spaces that are rich in possibilities and provocations and that invite the children to explore and solve problems, often in small groups and using age-appropriate materials and tools. Apart from specific age-related areas, common areas are available in the centre for all children. These spaces also allow children of different age-groups to come together.
