Supporting children’s learning environment
E100 Ethical Statement
I confirm that in this assignment I have only used material drawn from the setting identified on my employers Permission Agreement Form.

This often results in unintended curricula outcomes as children start to facilitate their own learning. This can be evident within our free play
