Why is continuous provision important in Early Years?

The purpose of an effective continuous provision is to offer children a constant environment that is safe for them to explore whilst challenging their learning. It should allow children the freedom to explore and become independent in making choices.

Carefully planned continuous provision will enable children to learn skills, will challenge their thinking and help them to embed concepts. It should also provide the context for a variety of learning conversations between children and adults with rich opportunities for modelling and extending speech and vocabulary. It is within this learning environment that the children will also develop key learning attributes. How the environment is planned, resourced, valued and used can impact positively, on children’s engagement, independence, collaboration, self-confidence, resilience and curiosity.

Here are a selection of pictures to show you what our continuous provision normally looks like...
