Creativity is a key part of our nursery curriculum. We encourage our children to explore a wide range of different media and to use materials to express themselves freely. We also share the works of real artists with our children and talk with them about the media they used and encourage them to create their own interpretation of the work of the artists. Our aim in doing this is to develop confident children who are willing to explore and experiment and are able to think, to reason , to plan and to express themselves freely
All of our two to five year olds have daily art sessions in our dedicated Art Studio with Anna, who is our fully qualified Art Teacher. Anna also spends time with our babies and toddlers each week introducing them to innovative sensory and creative age appropriate art activities.
Over the past tow months Anna and or staff team have been collecting the children’s art work for an Art Exhibition. Anna selected works from this collection that were mounted, curated and displayed throughout the nursery. All of the art work was offered for sale to our parents with the proceeds going to Children in Need.
The Art Exhibition was launched with a really well attended Saturday Art Open Day. Families were invited to come into the nursery and take part in the sort of art activities that might happen during the week. Thanks to all our amazing families who supported us by attending this event and to all who purchased their children’s art work. Thanks also to Anna and our staff team who gave up their time on a Saturday to help us make this day a success.
