Places to play every day (audits)
Create learning spaces to inspire, challenge and motivate children in the Early Years (3-5 year olds)
The Places to Play Every Day Audit enables settings to audit their Early Years environment to secure high quality provision for learning.
A fundamental aspect in driving improvement to the learning environment requires an initial audit to look at what is already in place. Auditing the provision will enable practitioners working to use a clear and systematic approach to evaluating what is currently available to children, and identify areas that can be further developed or enhanced in their setting.
The audits enable gaps in provision to be easily noted and actioned accordingly, in order to drive improvements to the quality of provision for young children. The audit supplements the main Places to Play Every Day guidance book.
The two publications complement each other as one provides clear guidance and the other enables ongoing self-evaluation to support high quality provision.
