Course information
It’s quite a tall order making sure that the continuous provision within your learning environment is suitable to the needs, interests and abilities of your children across the year, ensuring that there is a progression of skills and knowledge with the resources that are accessible to them as well as raising their levels of curiosity and challenge with your enhanced provision that will also extend their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
The phrase 'Continuous Provision' refers to the resources and areas laid out in your environment to provoke learning through play and exploration in the absence of an adult and for the children to become independent in making choices. The resources should be freely accessible to the children in the classroom during any designated 'free play' time and should stay relatively the same throughout the school year.
