Introduction To Early Childhood Education

As you have learned this week, there are many different aspects to development that you need to know when working with children from birth to age 8. You must ensure that your classrooms help to stimulate the physical, cognitive, and affective development for all students. For this assignment, you will bring together your knowledge of theories, developmental domains, and learning environments to design a learning environment. The steps for the assignment are:

Step 1: Create your learning environment

Step 2: Written support for your learning environment design

Access the APA template in the online classroom for assistance with the writing process, formatting, documentation, and citations in your written work. Your paper must include the following:
