“There are three teachers of children: adults, other children, and their physical environment.” – Loris Malaguzzi

The Third Teacher

At MYIS we recognize the significance of the environment as the “third teacher.” Careful thought and attention is given to the materials, textures, colors and lighting of our spaces in order to create an inviting and engaging learning environment for our children.

We take great pride in constructing aesthetically-pleasing and open environments, which lend itself to discovery, feelings of tranquility, authentic learning experiences and the building of close relationships.
