Environments for learning
How does the physical environment contribute to children’s learning? Learning environments are one of the key practices outlined in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). A carefully and thoughtfully prepared environment however, is also integral to many of the other EYLF Principles, Practices and Outcomes. Rather than looking at the physical environment in isolation, consider how it contributes to the successful application of all of the elements of the EYLF.

Part Two: Indoors and outdoors–opportunities for learning
Part Three: Believing in nature–creating natural spaces
Part Four: Thinking about your environment from a child’s perspective
