The learning environment is key in delivering the EYFS curriculum. It includes spacious indoor and outdoor areas and allows children to move freely between the two. The early years practitioners plan and organise the learning environment together to ensure it is accessible yet challenging for all children. They will scaffold child-led learning within it through high-quality sensitive interactions. Early years practitioners also plan more focused adult-guided learning experiences. This combination of teaching and learning strategies promotes the best outcomes for children.
