Abstract As advocates for high-quality early childhood education, we need to recognise the diverse abilities of children. Usually, when we discuss diverse abilities, we look at the needs of children with greater difficulties in attaining skills. However, creating a stimulating and supportive environment is important for all children, including those recognised as being gifted. Many gifted children have heigthtened levels of awareness, and not catering for their needs can lead to social, emotional and physical problems. Terman (1931, p.579) wrote that 'the higher the IQ, the more acute the problem'. Sevent-eight years later this sums up the situation well. How do we create an environment that nurtures and develops these children?
