The spaces and environments practitioners create for children are important when looking at the types of behaviour and skills they are trying to encourage. Prescriptive activities, rigid routines and environments devoid of children’s true interests and fascinations are not conducive to developing a sense of freedom and creativity for young children, especially those with developing skills. This chapter explores some of the important elements of an environment that promotes free creative thinking and the distinct differences between what practitioners provide for younger children, and what is needed to create a space conducive to creativity for older children, who are often physically more capable and ready for more challenges. The emotional environment practitioners create for children supports their overall wellbeing and sense of belonging. Something that goes hand in hand with the emotional environment that is created for young children are transitional times throughout the day and how these are managed by the adults in the room.
