Children at Broadgreen nursery take part in messy play and mathematical activities

Children at Bright Horizons Broadgreen Day Nursery and Preschool in Liverpool have been getting creative by exploring the marks they can make in a variety of ways.

“The toddlers particularly loved getting their hands messy in paint,” said Nursery Manager Stephanie Dickinson.

The activity was part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Artists programme which encourages creativity in art.

The children have also been taking part in mathematical play and exploration settings.

Staff have created a maths den which has a variety of maths activities for children to take part in to enhance skills such as number recognition.

“The maths den will play a part in our Growing Mathematicians programme,” continued Stephanie
