Expressive Art and Design

We provide everything your child needs for an impressive art education solution during their nursery life


Expressive Art & Design at Early Explorers

Expressive art and design is one of the 7 areas of the early years foundation stage and is used to develop a child’s imagination, creativity, and their ability to use media and materials.

Children are given opportunities to explore colors, textures, and designs.

Other approaches to expressive arts are children engaging in singing songs, dancing and making music. Expressive arts help children to represent and understand their own feelings and ideas while being imaginative. Thereby enhancing their holistic well-being.

We provide our children with a wide range of open-ended resources to develop their imagination and encourage flexible thinking. Our Educators motivate children to take pride in their ideas and creations so that they want to share and explain their thinking.

At Early Explorers, we explicitly model creative thinking and behavior through our expressive arts and design curriculum.

Play to Learn

Encouraging children to voice their curiosity is an important part of Early Explorers.

Our enabling environments both indoors and outdoors allow children to be actively playing, thinking critically and developing the skills they need to become independent thinkers and strong communicators. Our bespoke environments enable active learning where children concentrate and keep on trying, even when they encountered difficulties, and enjoy their achievements. We have carefully chosen numerous open-ended authentic resources for our children to explore that are in line with our curriculum approach. We provide natural resources and set up environments/activities that reflect real-life experiences.
