The Enabling Environment
In this section you are examining the rationale for planning your play spaces and inspiring children’s play and curiosity, the different tools and storage that you may provide, the range of materials and loose parts, the range of spaces and environments that you can provide.
Understanding Intervention styles is key to the success of In the Moment Planning and is often not clearly understood. This section gives you the opportunity to reflect on your own intervention style and consider the different and varied responses to the children’s play. You should ask when, how and why should I intervene? When should I observe and what are teachable moments?
Examples of Best Practice
In this section there are a few examples of best practice to consider and review. Compare and contrast to your own experiences through discussion
Review and Planning for Change
Reflection and discussion are important. What are you already doing well? How does this impact on your planning? What challenges may this present? How can you overcome these? Create a development plan for change and review the progress at intervals.
