The craft room is separate from the main classroom so children can be creative with all types of materials and not have to worry about clearing it way because it is in their main classroom environment. This allows many varying types of ongoing play experiences to occur enabling the children to have lots of creative and sensory craft experiences.
Our craft room is resourced so the children can self select. The emphasis is on child initiated creativity, encouraging independence and reflecting the child’s own thought and ideas. The resources are accessible and grouped for ease of locality by all of the age groups. The babies, 2’s, 3’s and preschool children access this creative area sharing resources provided by the nursery and also items bought in from home.
