This week I decided to feature Carlton Kids daycare because I was so impressed with their twitter bio: “I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator. I run a Reggio Emilia inspired, home based, child care for children ages 3-5 years.”
I am a big fan of the Reggio Emilia curriculum and I was so impressed when I viewed Maren’s website and saw her Reggio inspired environment. As you can see in the photos, the environment is so organized and filled with so many enriching materials.
Including: award-winning twist on plastic blocks, drama centre, creative area, color frames, cognitive area and so much more. View more of Carlton’s kids photos online.
