Child Initiated Learning requires the child

deciding where to go

what to do (within the boundaries set)

what to use

who to work with (if anyone)

how long to be there (within the boundaries if the day)


It is NOT Child Initiated Learning when adults

set the agenda

send children to particular areas

organise groups to work together

limit the time they can spend at their chosen area

rotate groups round provision.


Hope that helps

In answer to your question about the picture lotto - yes, I would say that that is child led, and that your topic activities, planned and provided by you, are adult led/initiated.
