Provide a cosy place with a cushion and a soft light where a child can rest quietly if they need to.
Plan so that children can be active in a range of ways, including while using a wheelchair.
Encourage children to be active and energetic by organising lively games, since physical activity is important in maintaining good health and in guarding against children becoming overweight or obese in later life.
Remove obstacles and furniture that could restrict mobility. Ensure accessibility especially for children with a physical disability.
Use visual support to sequence routines such as toileting, handwashing and dressing.
Establish regular routines for eating, drinking, washing and toileting so that children become familiar with the rhythm of the day
Consider accessibility of resources and make sure all children are able to make choices about what they can use and what they want to do.
Use a visual timetable to support children’s understanding of routines during the day.
Consider opportunities to move up, down and through spaces and equipment.
Use mirrors, reflective materials and a range of multi-sensory materials to stimulate curiosity and active investigation.
Ensure indoor/outdoor areas are fully accessible to all children, making reasonable adjustments to layout, organisation and resources to meet individual needs safely.
