By observing and working with so many children and babies I have seen the huge benefits of creative-led play. We have tried to keep the nursery a fun environment with a selection of toys and more natural resources and loose parts. As a nursery this has had a huge benefit, it has encouraged the children to play with each other and problem solve as a team. We have found the children use their imagination much more and develop skills that they may not have done playing with a toy that just has one use. Toys still have their uses and children also develop language and learning with toys so we try to give them a good balance of both.
