What We Do

The Expressive Arts and Design area enables a child to explore and operate with an extensive range of media and elements. As well as provides possibilities. Also, it encourages them to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings. And they do it through some activities like art, music, dance, role-play, movement, design and technology.

The Expressive Arts and Design area will allow children to express themselves in a creative way and learn new things.

Some ideas of activities you can do at home to support your child's development in this area include:

  • Make up a family routine of dancing to the music
  • Sing familiar songs or put your own words on nursery rhyme tunes
  • Make shakers with rice or pasta in pots
  • Paint with coloured ice or shaving foam
  • Make props for your child's favourite story and act it out together
  • Build shelters and passages with sheets and under the kitchen table
  • Re-create your child's favourite places using blocks
  • Roleplay a visit to the café and make a menu together

The curriculum is ambitious and challenging for children. Staff know the children well and have a good grasp of how best to support them and build on their knowledge and skills.
