As mentioned in the previous post the best way to encourage growth is to give children environments that create options that might interest them in their individual personality. Such environments include creative art, blocks, science center, reading corner, music, outdoors, etc.

The best components are the ones that meet the needs of the children in the classroom.  There should be a wide variety of materials ranging from sensory to dramatic play to art, blocks and so many other things.  There should be items that will challenge one's abilities, things that are appropriate for the age they're at, and even toys that are a little simpler, that can comfort children on rougher days when they're not ready to be pressed.

In order to provide a good early learning environment you must provide a variety of components in order to engage all of the children in the classroom and their specific likes, needs, etc. 

Some of those components may include:

Sensory bins
Art/Science areas
Dramatic play 
Quiet areas/libraries
Fine and Gross motor areas
Outdoor/Exercise

Making sure there is a variety is key and making sure to switch things up s essential as well
