We’re here to help you transform early childhood education experiences through meaningful environmental design, defending the wonder of childhood.
When four women from across the globe combined their passion and drive for better early childhood learning experiences, something incredible happened.
Bound by the belief that inspiring environments unlock and nurture children’s knowledge and potential, the foursome set out to enable educators to create more purposeful early childhood education spaces and experiences.
Their dream? A digital platform dedicated to environmental design for early years settings. An online destination for inspirational imagery, quality content, research and trends, best practices, and thought leadership.
A place where educators and parents share their creativity, knowledge, and ideas to better the lives of children globally.
A professional development hub that takes you on a journey of environmental design, making planning spaces that spark wonder and discovery - easier.
And it had to be beautiful, creative, and fun.
And it is.
