Are you new to creating learning spaces in your home child care program? or maybe you are ready to spruce up your spaces for this upcoming school year? I've got the challenge for you!
Join me in our FB community for the next 6 weeks as I help you make improvements to the following learning spaces:
Week 1 (7/16) : Dramatic Play Space
Week 2 (7/23): Reading Space
Week 3 (7/30): Art & Writing Space
Week 4 (8/6): Construction/Building Space
Week 5 (8/13): Music & Movement Space
Week 6 (8/20): Science & Nature
How does it work?
Each Monday during the challenge I'll suggest low cost items you can add to the learning space we are focusing on, give tips on how to create these learning spaces in your program, and share inspiring photos from our community to inspire you!
How can you participate?
Participation is simple!
1. First make sure you've joined our FB group where I am hosting the challenge.
2. Set aside time during your week to commit to working on improving your learning spaces.
3.Take a few minutes each week to fill out your learning spaces worksheet. These worksheets have been designed to keep you focused on your improvement goals for each space-so when it comes time to do the heavy lifting (on the weekends and after work) you won't get side tracked.
4. Take some time to share your before and after photos in our FB group, share about your progress, get help, and support the other participants.
The big prize is ending up with a learning space you love, but to sweeten the deal we will have a weekly giveaway ever Friday during the challenge. Entering is easy! Everyone who shares a photo of their learning space (related to the challenge week) will be entered to win.
Before we get started
Creating learning spaces for a home based childcare program can have challenges. Some of the common challenges are dealing with limited space, and managing materials for mixed aged groups.
Throughout this challenge I hope to provide you with helpful tips to conquer some of these common areas of concern for many providers!

Often a Childcare Provider is faced with the challenge of caring for children of varying ages (from Infancy to School Age). From Snacks-to a Daily routine, it can be difficult to figure out how to accommodate the needs of all these children in your care.
