Creative Development


Children should be continually developing their imagination and creativity across the curriculum. Their curiosity and disposition to learn should be stimulated by everyday sensory experiences, both indoors and outdoors. Children should engage in creative, imaginative and expressive activities in art, craft, design, music, dance and movement.

Children should explore a wide range of stimuli, develop their curiosity, develop their ability to communicate, and express their creative ideas, and disposition, feelings and views, and reflect on their work. The arts are quite simply a magic key for some children and within the hands of gifted, committed caregivers, they are everyday the key to all children – not only do they open the mind of sensory, they reveal a cornucopia of endless delight, experiences, challenge and opportunity both indoors (Professor Tim Brighouse) and outdoors.
