Much at Play: Early Learning Center Design Trends

The classroom has always been and will continue to be a core learning space. But why should the learning stop there? Since early learners are constantly on the prowl for new information, today’s early learning centers (ELCs) should offer learning opportunities around every corner. Traditionally, the school corridor has functioned solely to transport students from one classroom to another. That is a wasted opportunity. Breakout areas just outside of classrooms support small-group activities and specialized instruction. They also create a sense of community and arouse curiosity among passing students.… Read more →

Freedom Walkway

If you pay a visit to downtown Rock Hill, S.C., you might find yourself in the Freedom Walkway, walking on bands of red and cocoa pavers from Pine Hall Brick Co., laid into a running bond pattern that turns into a basketweave pattern at gathering spots. The Freedom Walkway takes its design from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, commemorating the sit-in, an often-used method of civil disobedience. Black college students adopted the method of going to segregated lunch counters and ordering food. When they were denied, they would refuse to leave and ended up under arrest. Bolstered by a sit-in in February 1960 by four North Carolina A&T State University students at the Woolworth’s in downtown Greensboro, N.C., the movement spread to 250 cities across the U.S. by the end of that month and 400 by the end of the year. In January 1961, the Friendship Nine — so named because eight of the nine were students at Friendship Junior College — attempted to integrate a whites-only lunch counter at the McCrory’s department store in Rock Hill.… Read more →
