Benefits of Art for Children!


Art brings many benefits for a child’s development including creativity, fine & gross motor skills, literacy and problem solving.
Here at Leigh’s we have a very inviting, easily accessible art area for all of the children, full of a huge variety of media and materials for them to explore. This open ended area gives endless opportunity for the children to make their own choices & decisions, plan & think of their own ideas and try out new tools & techniques freely.
Art can help children of all ages and abilities come together to engage in a shared, loved activity. Sharing their creations and masterpieces with eachother gives a huge confidence boost too. The freedom of art also helps children to build confidence in their own ability and challenge themselves brilliantly!
Art materials provide a safe outlet for emotions. Movements, images, colours and imaginations can really help children to express themselves in a more comfortable way than words. We make creative activities at nursery so fun and rewarding that the children want to do them over and over again!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
