Webinar with Phil Smith and Jacqui Lees

Well-designed early childhood spaces promote learning, protect wellbeing, and invite children to engage in a range of experiences. This webinar will examine the principles of effective design in early childhood spaces, and explore ways that teachers can use the language of space to promote and encourage learning, creativity, movement, exploration, and social emotional wellbeing.
Phil Smith is a multi-award-winning architect and the Founder and Director of Smith Architects, where he leads the practice’s focus on sustainable design. Smith Architects has completed over 100 early childhood centre designs in four different countries, and won 30 international and national awards to date.
