When designing room arrangements, the developmental needs of children must be taken into account. In other words, the arrangement of an infant room would be different from that of a toddler room. Review the diagrams of the three room arrangements discussed in Chapter 5 (infant, toddler, preschool). In your discussion post:
• Compare and contrast the three room arrangements.
Critique the room arrangement of your choice (infant, toddler, or preschool). Which aspects do you feel are missing? Which aspects are not needed? How is this room arrangement supported, or not supported by early childhood theories?
Describe two to three concerns you have about potential safety hazards in these room arrangements and how you would address them.
