Storage is More Important than You Think
February 9, 2018
Genius is eternal patience.

A section on the importance of providing great storage is included in the newly revised book, Caring Spaces, Learning Places: Children’s Environments that Work! The book makes the case that "good storage allows children to:

  • Feel a sense of control and competence...
  • Learn about the relations between things. (Organizing objects based on similar properties or functions teaches children about the nature of things.)
  • Develop more complex play and creations...
  • Take responsibility...
  • Respect the value of materials and their efforts...
  • Make the place their own. (If I can store my own things, my treasures and my unfinished sculpture, this is my place.)"

Caring Spaces, Learning Places

The newest revision of Caring Spaces, Learning Places is a book of ideas, observations, problems, solutions, examples, resources, photographs, and poetry. Here you will find current thinking about children's environments to challenge, stimulate, and inspire you.
