Children spend a significant portion of their childhood in early years settings and primary schools. Therefore these spaces should support children’s learning and innate desire to explore, imagine, be curious and play.
They should be tactile spaces where children can: interact with natural elements like water and mud; invent games; build cubbies with sticks; observe butterflies, caterpillars and other creatures of the natural world; feel a sense of adventure; experiment with risk-taking and find a space to be themselves.
To support educators in providing the best learning environment they can, we’ve developed a range of resources below. Our educator’s membership launching in October, has a host of tools to optimise your space’s potential and take learning outcomes even further.
