What we offer

At Creative Kidz we offer children both child initiated, and adult led play opportunities.

 

The purpose of child-initiated play is to support children in having ideas and being in control of their learning. It enables them to learn through first-hand experiences, allowing them to choose how to use the resources to do so.

 

Child-led activities may start out as an adult initiated activity however by allowing the child space and time; the child may extend the resources and ideas given to create their own experience. It is important to strike a balance between adult led and child initiated activities to meet best the children’s outcomes.

 

It is suggested that adult led, and child initiated play should take up a third of play each. The other third of time should be used for adults to build on child-initiated activities, to extend further learning opportunities and enable sustained shared thinking to take place. This is supported by the characteristics of effective learning; encouraging the way in which children learn.

 

The adult’s role in child initiated play-Adults play a significant role in child initiated play. They provide a safe environment for the child to explore and test out their ideas. Adults may use the child’s interests or next steps to develop play through offering a breadth of opportunities or resources for the child to use in a variety of ways.

 

It is important for the adult to understand the needs of the child and work towards providing opportunities for child-initiated play. This can be achieved through observations and building a solid relationship with the child, in order to learn about their likes and dislikes.

 

At Creative kidz we fulfil this obligation by gaining information about each individual child during induction on an “all about me” sheet. We then obtain ongoing feedback during club council meetings.

 

A variety of equipment and play opportunities are available to the children, as play workers we are here to support and facilitate children’s play.

 

We offer the children a fair balance of risk and safety in play and children enjoy the activities on offer. If present, the additional needs of parent's and children are being met .Children are offered the opportunity to learn about different faiths and cultures and we are an inclusive childcare setting.
