Areas of learning 


Our stimulating Nursery environment is set up with lots of areas of continuous provision around our large, spacious environment. Effective continuous provision is designed to offer children a constant environment that is safe for them to explore whilst challenging their learning using different resources available to them.  Children are given the opportunity to become independent in their choice making and given the freedom to explore, challenge and take control of their learning.


The EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) is important in supporting children in becoming active learners. Continuous provision are toys and objects that are set up constantly and consistently in the environment and this enables children to develop their thinking skills and develop their story telling skills through play. Practitioners observe play closely through photographs and written observations and the use of continuous provision and play based skills during the session.

 Continuous provision supports children’s learning and development across all seven areas and the characteristics of effective learning. 

Below are some of the areas of continuous provision that you will find in the Nursery at Robin Hood.
