The organization of the classroom is important in supporting the academic progress of students. Classroom space should provide an environment that allows teachers and students to interact comfortable and safely. With this in mind careful consideration has been given to the strategic placement of furniture, learning centers, and materials in order to optimize student learning, reduce distractions and keep children safe.
