Is what our environments here at Jollies are designed to facilitate… we want our children to be inspired and follow their interests and set their learning journeys off in their own self-chosen wonderful directions!
Throughout the day they are invited to participate in adult-led activities with a specific learning intention too, but we also always want to support their exploration and discovery in an independent way too.
It is in these spaces that adults observe closely and then sensitively intervene to scaffold, support and extend their play, but as far as our children are concerned they are just having a brilliant time playing!! (They can leave the rest of the other stuff to their Jolly grown ups who are always observing, evaluating, assessing and thinking about planning for their future learning and progression).
Whoop whoop to Early Years play xxxx
