With the passing of Elizabeth Prescott, we lose one of the most influential American pioneers in early childhood education. Her provocative thinking on the impact of the environment – both physical and social – on the learning experiences of young children has influenced our field for decades. My interview with her in 1978 for the Exchange article, “The Physical Environment: A Powerful Regulator of Experience,” was one of the most moving experiences of my career. I am pleased to re-introduce this article which was published three times in Exchange Magazine (in 1979, 1994 and 2008).
