Child’s Play: Designing for Early Learning
Sandra Duncan, EdD, is an international specialist of early childhood environments. She has conducted extensive research on the psychology of places and spaces – specifically how children engage with built environments and natural surroundings. Sandra applies the pedagogical theories of Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Waldorf when creating holistically designed places for young children.
Dr. Duncan is a former owner of multi-site/multi-state early learning campuses, president of an educational publishing company, and publisher of two well-respected education journals. She is also the author of six books focused on environmental design, the designer of two furniture collections (Sense of Place and Sense of Place for Wee Ones), and adjunct faculty at Nova Southeastern University. She is eternally grateful for the opportunities to transform hundreds of environments into extraordinary and inspiring places for young children.
