Responsive environments is one of the 5 action areas outlined in the supporting successful transition: School decision-making tool (PDF, 1.6MB)

The responsive environments action area focuses on processes, procedures, and physical, temporal and social contexts in our school environments.

For each focus area, there is a description of a range of behaviours across 3 decision-making levels (school-centred, consultative and collaborative) to assist schools in their reflections and planning.

Young children learn best when they are actively engaged in a constructive and interactive environment with a wide range of materials.

During the transition to school, these environments also encourage children to develop a sense of control over their learning and the choices that they can make, which has a strong impact on their learning outcomes over time. The Supporting successful transitions: School decision-making tool recognises the importance of knowing and establishing partnerships with children to support active engagement in their own learning.
