We specialise in developing really effective learning environments for children. We use The Communication Friendly Spaces™ Approach as a framework for review, to help you to re-think the way you use your environment more effectively, to support children’s learning.

Elizabeth Jarman conceptualised this approach in 2006. She says, "we need to challenge historical stereotypes around the way that environments have traditionally been set up for children, based on what we know today about brain development, language aquisition, child development and attachment theory. It's time for a re-think!"

We are the sole provider of CFS™ training. We supply a wide range of CFS™ products including our inspiring CFS™ Bag Collections. We fund action research projects to understand more about children’s preferred contexts for learning. We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations on a consultancy basis.
