Finally, I work hard to create an indoor and outdoor environment that enriches, challenges, and encourages children to develop interests, connect with each other, have alone time, and learn through play. I accomplish this goal by continually assessing my play materials, adding new things, gauging my children’s interests and needs, and adjusting my environment accordingly.
I did a creative activity whilst HQS was watching and it was making a spiders web but the lady said it needed to be more child initiative because it was to structured and for their age group it was asking them to do too much. On the feedback from HQS they said that its good for the children see us do it then they can see the point of the activity and that it isn’t about the finished product it’s about the process. I now have a better
OP 2.17: Contribute to the support of children’s creative development 1.

They will have unstructured art projects using a variety of media and their own imagination. They will have access to markers, crayons, white and colored paper, glue, scissors, stickers, and die cut foam stickers throughout the day. Also they will have access to glitter, sequins, feathers and other craft items for special activities. The children will also have opportunities to participate in structured and unstructured dance and movement in large and small group settings. In large group settings they will participate in activities that match songs to movements. They will also learn how to follow rhythm with several different percussion style instruments. In small group settings they will have an opportunity to learn about new instruments and have access to them throughout the day.
Play is inevitable when it comes to children. Given the right environment and objects (of any sort), children will find a way to play. Jarvis, et al state that educators must offer inspiring, playful environments which include hands-on activities and interesting resources. This will empower children to educate themselves (2009). Along the same line, Wood and Attfield consider that an environment inclusive of varied resources will provide room for growth in their learning and will support the child’s “creativity, inventiveness and originally” (2005, p.231).
When children are playing it is essential that you allow them to explore their interests and ensure they have the space and time to do so. Children will be drawn to specific activities. Children will learn and develop more when they are discovering and exploring their interests as they will be more involved and willing to take part. When planning activities in a setting staff should work on activities that cover the children’s areas of interests enabling them to learn and develop
The name of Rachel and I’s preschool was Chit Chatter Clubhouse. Our philosophy discusses how our preschool strives to educate the whole child physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. We also strive to provide stimulation activities that will prepare our students for the future. Based off of this philosophy we were able to choose different materials from the content areas and set up our classroom with the areas of science, math, block, art, P.E./movement, dramatic play, and reading/writing and morning meeting/circle time. We decided on materials for these areas based off of our goals as well. We found developmentally appropriate furniture such as shelves, tables, chairs, and couches. These furniture pieces were low to the ground since we are teaching 3-5 year olds. Along with these furniture pieces, we have a teacher area with shelving and a desk for us so we can create lessons or work on things to make us better teachers. We have sinks and bathrooms that help students become independent and learn healthy
