Sažetak
The environment has always been considered important in providing a wide range of activities and resources in children’s explorations. Every child’s activity is shaped by the physical environment. In our research the focus is on the physical environment, its material and spatial characteristics, in the function of the children’s explorations during the project activities. In this research, as a topic-oriented, the focus was on a particular aspect of the preschool curriculum (material and spatial dimensions of the children’s project activities) and on a particular children’s activities (preparatory activities for the visit to Ethnological department of the National Museum), what located the research in a particular place (kindergarten Višnjik in Zadar), established a time frame (morning part of the daily schedule), and identifies a particular group of children (23 children aged 4-7 years in one mixed educational group). The research was conducted over one-month duration of the project Family.The data are in agreement with the first hypothesis that early childhood classroom are organized by centers of activities. During the realization of the project activities several centers were found in the classroom arrangement: manipulative center, art center, block center, dramatic play center, reading and writing center, and science center. The research results pointed out that most of the interest areas were equipped with developmentally appropriate materials. The block and art centers were two most commonly used centers of activities. The results also indicated that the space arrangement should not be strictly and completely planned in advance. Preschool teachers are expected to follow the children and their ideas about the space arrangement. The goal of emergent curriculum is to meet every child’s need and interest.
