2013 Early Childhood Education Design ConferenceOctober 24 2013


The 2013 ECE Design Conference will bring together nationally recognized experts and thought leaders to highlight best practices and cutting edge research in designing, developing and managing high performance learning environments for early childhood education.

The video below is an interview with Peter C. Lippman on the design of Early Learning Centres and will be broadcast at the conference. This interview focuses on Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Forrest Kindergarten’s in Northern Europe.

Peter examines how these distinct approaches have influenced design for the Early Learning Centre for Holy Cross College in Perth. The ELC is layered with a   variety of breakout spaces that support the distinct ways in which children learn.

Once completed, Peter would like to conduct a responsive research project examining how the spaces afford development.


The second video is a walk-through of the Holy Cross College ELC.
