EYFS Space Requirements You will need to calculated the numbers of children you can care for using the EYFS Space requirements which are set out in Page 27 paragraph 3.57 (please note this does not include kitchen, storage, thorough fares). To calculate the numbers of children use the following guide and example. Playroom clear space available—2.5mtrs x 2.5mtrs=6.25 square metres divide by 2.5 = 2 x(2 yr olds) The maximum number of children will be 2 -2yr olds in this space You will need to include your own children under 8 yrs in the space. If you care for any children aged eight and over this may affect the number of children you can care for under eight.
Preparing for your ideal environment If you had an ideal setting what would it look like? Eg……. Play areas, toys, resources, safety, outdoors, sleep, meal times, toilet, (think about positive childhood experience to help you) Draw or write your ideas…….
Why is it important to be outside !!!!
ENABLING ENVIRONMENTS Make sure your environment provides opportunities for children to access activities across the 7 areas of learning. Make sure it is inviting for children?
Provide lots of opportunities for babies and young children to explore natural materials?
Ensure your toys are labelled to help children to choose what they want to play with?
Provide a messy and creative play area? Display children’s art work?
Provide a role play area? Provide role play resources value different cultures?
Provide an area where children can choose to construct and build? Do the resources meet the needs of the children in your care?
Provide a comfortable area where children can enjoy books together? Do your books represent positive images of different cultures, religion, gender and disability. Provide books in dual languages?

Pg “Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure, when their individual their individual needs are met, and when they have positive relationships with the adults caring for them. The safeguarding and welfare requirements are designed to help providers create high quality settings which are welcoming, safe and stimulating and where children are able to enjoy learning and grow in confidence Pg “Provider must take steps to keep children safe and well. The requirements explains what provider must do to: safeguard children: promote health; manage behaviour and maintain records, policies and procedures” EYFS Section 3- Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements
Children’s Safety Every year around 1 million children are taken to hospital after an accident at home. The vast majority of these accidents happen to children under five years old. It can be difficult to walk the line between keeping children safe from accidental injury and over protecting them. Children need the right to explore their surroundings safely.

The provider must have a clear and well-understood policy, and procedures, for assessing any risks to children’s safety, and review risk assessments regularly. Page Risk Assessment Providers must ensure that they take all reasonable steps to ensure staff and children in their care are not exposed to risks and must be able to demonstrate how they ae managing risks= RISK ASSESSMENTS Page Outings SWR – Safety and Suitably premises, environment and equipment- Page Children must be kept safe on outings, and vehicles in which children are transported, and driver of those vehicles must be adequately insured.
