"Nicole gave me a tour of her child care environment... I am
IMPRESSED! Nicole has put a great deal of thought, time
effort, and financial resources into her environment.
Excellent utilization of space- well planned - the best I have
I love the Entrance/Communication area, Multi-levels/Loft-
nice to bring in that extra square footage of usable space,
Interest Areas/Learning Centers- AMAZING!!!
This would be way too lengthly if I were to expound on all of
- I see that Nicole has a variety of songs, stories,
books, and games- including those from other
cultures- that encourage language development.
- From what I see displayed on the walls and see in
other ares of the environment, I can tell Nicole
provides opportunities for children to represent their
ideas nonverbally through activities such as painting,
music making and creative movements.
the wonderful things about Nicole's environment... you must
see it to truly appreciate it."
