The environment in Children’s House contains material that has been carefully designed to allow children to explore and name a variety of sensations: size, color, form/shape, texture, smell, sound, and much more. The activities offer physical and tangible introductions to the mechanics of the language (parts of a sentence, etc) or to number concepts (the decimal system and simple mathematical operations).
The multiple age environment also promotes social skills. They have limited amount of material on the shelves with the objective that they learn to share, wait for their turn, or choose a different activity.
