It is very important that Early Years practitioners continually evaluate the areas of learning in their setting. Children should have the opportunity to access the areas independently and creatively. It was recognised that the creative area in Nursery was well resourced and inviting, however the layout was not working as efficiently as it could. Miss O’Connor observed the children’s interests and how they moved around the Nursery. She created a new ‘Studio’ area with a reclaimed craft section that the children could access independently. The results have been fantastic! The children can be observed using scissors, glue and many other mediums to create pictures and models! Their independent skills are progressing beautifully and we have some aspiring artists and architects in the making!
