We believe that all children are innately creative - if given the opportunity.
As we take some of our inspiration from the child-led project-based learning of Reggio-Emilia in Italy, we wanted to make sure that our children have regular opportunities to express themselves creatively.
We have a hugely talented artist, Becky Gilbey, as part of our team. Together with our Lead Educator Christine Abbott, she has created an interactive artistic and creative space (or Atelier) where the children can engage with different media and themes eg light, darkness, sound and music. These are regularly developed, changed and altered depending on what has been driving the children's interests.
It is an ever-changing blank canvas for them to engage with.
