Arts & Crafts

Arts and crafts are an integral part of our service provision, and all children have the opportunity and freedom to engage in craft activities throughout the day.  The benefits of crafting for all ages are endless and children should be encouraged to explore the available resources and create whatever they wish.  Whilst children will often choose to make a theme related masterpiece, they can also diverge from our planned activities and engage in spontaneous, unstructured crafting.
