Interventions and social constructions to facilitate peaceful alternatives to aggression and violence in the classroom and child care environment are also discussed.

 

Classroom Design and Curriculum for Providing an Emotionally Safe Environment

From before a child enters your classroom to months into the program, there are many ways that teachers and school managers can provide children and their parents with a classroom that is safe, welcoming and their own. Lemberg staff will help you design such classrooms. These early strategies and structures are vital to long-term environmental success.
