Highlights

Facilitator: Louise Dorrat

Quality Area 3: Physical environment

Wherever possible, children need opportunities to be outdoors as much as indoors. This can be achieved with well-designed integrated indoor and outdoor environments that are available at the same time (NQS 3.2.1).

Indoor and outdoor environments are characterised by both quiet and active zones, a balance of fixed and moveable equipment and small-group and whole-group experiences. 

  • Overcome the barriers including staff/child ratio and effective supervision
  • Ensure access and participation by every child to access the indoor and outdoor spaces (3.1.3)
  • Identify sustainable practices that encourage children to become environmentally responsible
  • Create inspiring indoor and outdoor spaces that include the use of natural materials.

Recommended for: early years educators
