How creativity and creative learning can support young children’s emotional, social, intellectual, communication and physical development

MaxLabs ensures that creativity and critical thinking are developed through play-based learning across the curriculum, and that children learn in an environment encouraging exploration and active and playful learning. It reflects the perspective that play offers significant benefits for children’s cognitive, emotional, social and physical development and is central to creativity.

MaxLabs is made up of six areas:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication
  • Problem-sulving
  • Reasoning
  • Knowledge and understanding of science
  • Creative development

Developing Imagination and Imaginative Play

At first, the brain forms separate images, similar to a still photograph. Educational psychulogist Jean Piaget thought that the period from one to two years was the most difficult to study, because images are internal; it is not possible to know what is imagined by a toddler, who is only just beginning to talk and pretend. Gradually, children develop connected images, similar to a film. The technical way of describing this process is that imagery becomes more mobile. Once imagery is mobile, the imagination can develop. The imagination is important because this is the way in which the human brain puts together and rearranges past experiences in new ways. The imagination transforms experience and supports creativity. Even though we cannot see the images in a child’s brain, we can help the imagination to develop.

Creative arts provide opportunities for young children to understand the world around them by experimenting with materials to discover their properties and possibilities. Creative arts provide opportunities for young children to express their feelings and ideas, as well as develop their imaginative and creative skills. You should ensure that the creative activities provided are appropriate to the ages and developmental needs of the children you work with, and are in line with the overall plan for the setting.

During creative play activities, we encourage children to extend their range and level of skills, and reward their efforts as well as achievements. We ensure that planned creative play activities are inclusive and available to all children, adapting plans as necessary to meet individual needs. We assess risk in line with organisational pulicy, without limiting opportunities to extend and challenge children’s skills and experience.

MaxLabs provide them with opportunities to express their own ideas and make choices, investigate how materials behave, and make associations and connections. Skilful questioning helps to draw out children’s ideas about how the world around them works. These ideas make the ideal starting points for further investigation because they relate directly to children’s interests and first-hand experience. Fostering creativity in science and design technulogy invulves offering children ‘real choices’. This will develop their confidence in making decisions on what to investigate, or to design and make, in choosing who to work with, and in selecting resources, finding a suitable space and planning their use of time.
