Consider an environment that you would be designing for a group of three to five-year-olds. Using what you are learning about Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) across the developmental domains, answer the following questions:

  • What would you want to include for these preschoolers?
  • What types of materials, toys, and furnishings should be included to encourage and support DAP activities and interactions for the preschool age across all five developmental domains?

Be sure to suggest what you would include in the setting to enhance the physical domain, intellectual domain, language domain, emotional domain, and social domain.

In your response postings, assess your peers’ suggestions, ask additional questions to gain more understanding, and share additional ideas and resources about these DAP settings.

Due dates for your initial and response posts can be found by checking the Course Syllabus and Course Calendar.
