Classroom Design

The design of your classroom depends on many factors. These factors include available space, class furniture, windows, outlets, baseboards, and especially the number of learners. Please keep in mind that the classroom includes the outside as well. Community walks, backyard gardens, and local playgrounds add valuable classroom space to the learner’s environment.
