Enabling Environments

As we strongly focus on children learning and developing well in a warm, welcoming and enabling environment, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers. Please use the menu above to access the four sections of the Enabling Environments theme.

Enabling Environments

  • Value all people
  • Value Learning 
  • Stimulating resources, relevant to all the children’s cultures and communities
  • Rich learning opportunities through play and playful teaching
  • Support for children to take risks and explore

3.1 Observation, Assessment and Planning

Babies and young children are individuals first, each with a unique profile of abilities. At our day-care centres, we follow schedules and routines that are specific to each individual child.
All planning starts with observing children in order to understand and consider their current interests, development and learning.

3.2 Supporting Every Child

The environment supports every child’s learning through planned experiences and activities that are challenging but achievable.

3.3 The Learning Environment

A rich and varied environment supports children’s learning and development.
As an outdoor learning nursery, we give children the confidence to explore and learn in secure and safe, yet challenging, indoor and outdoor spaces.

3.4 The Wider Context

Working in partnership with other settings, other professionals and with individuals and groups in the community supports children’s development and progress towards the outcomes of Every Child Matters: being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and economic well-being.
