Play-based Learning Environments

The support documents on this page link different learning centres/play areas to the key learning areas (Numeracy, Literacy, Studies of Society and Environment, The Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education, Science) and knowledge that can be learned and developed with the children.  Obviously all concepts, skills and knowledge can not be listed on one page…but this is a great starting point.

There are also Early Years learning Framework Overviews that link play in these different parts of a play-based learning environment to developing “dispositions” and attitudes to learning listed in the E.Y.L.F

Use these in your planning folder, as posters on the walls for parents or to help staff with observations, reflections and extending children’s learning.

Have fun!
