In the preschool room we are going to trial a free flow system where the children can choose between being indoors or outdoors between a certain time of the day. This lets the children make the decision on if they would like to be outside or inside and when, depending on what they want to do. To begin with, we are trialing it for an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon to see how the children get on with it.
At the minute the children seem to really enjoy the independence of free flowing.
Some of the benefits of free flow… - Encourages independence - Putting the decision in the children hands - Progressing at their own pace - Physical wellbeing - Greater sense of freedom
