Continuous Provision/Enabling Environments
To continue the provision for learning in the absence of an adult.
Alistair Bryce-Clegg, 2013
Indoor and outdoor resources are organised to develop children’s skills in personal interaction and exploration and are linked to current assessment data. Resources are carefully selected to meet the development needs of the children to enhance potential for new learning and consolidate prior learning.
Resources and enhancements are dressed/displayed to reflect children’s interests – discover, experiment and explore are key themes. Continuous provision transcends all areas of learning and provides children with the opportunity to demonstrate the three characteristics of effective learning. Children are given the freedom to make independent choices and are encouraged to be active learners and take control of their own learning.
