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

Find a variety of ideas for creating environments for children that help them celebrate and appreciate the rich diversity of our world. In the newest edition of Caring Spaces, Learning Places, find current thinking about children’s environments—380 pages to challenge you, stimulate you, inspire you.
