Offering children flexible seating choices can be a great way to make the classroom environment more cozy and home-like. Let's take a look at flexible seating in a Reggio-Inspired school.
What is Flexible Seating?
Flexible seating is simply offering students multiple choices of where and how to sit in the classroom.
Traditionally, classrooms are supplied with desks and/or tables and chairs. However, with flexible seating, the students are offered pillows, cushioned stools, bean bag type chairs, or alternative seating to sit in.
Let's take a look at some cozy flexible seating areas created at Rosa Parks ECEC.
