Provision Planning

Your provision – your learning areas – do not need to be defined or zoned in a home childminding environment. They will flow through your house and garden and support children’s learning through the resources and equipment you provide for children to use.

The following activity planning guides are based on continuous provision: the toys and games you always have available for children and link closely to the 7 areas of learning of the EYFS and are similar to themes, topics or medium term plans, to give you ideas for activities and planning for the EYFS aged children in your care.
