A sincere thanks is extended to David Heath, Kyra Ostendorf, and those at Redleaf Press who have allowed me to share the con- cept of Pedagogy and Space with early childhood professionals everywhere. Thanks also to Danny Miller, whose editing contributions masterfully shaped the text into a polished final product. A debt of gratitude goes out to the many Pittsburgh-based National Association for the Education of Young Children–accredited child care programs that graciously agreed to share their inspiring indoor and outdoor spaces. Photos from the following programs are shared within the pages of this book, and I am truly grateful to each for allowing me to capture ele- ments of their wonderful programs. Many of those listed below have been dear friends for a long time, and some are new friends. Thank you to each for your fierce commitment to provid- ing high-quality experiences to the children of Pittsburgh. Thank you as well to the Waldorf School of Philadelphia who generously contrib- uted photos of their whimsical classroom spaces. • The Campus School of Carlow University— Michelle Peduto, Executive Director http://campusschool.carlow.edu • Carriage House Children’s Center— Natalie A.
