Children at Bright Horizons Lewisham Day Nursery and Preschool have been enjoying loose parts play sessions recently.
In these sessions, the children are encouraged to use a variety of items such as toy animals or leaves and move them around freely to create their own scenarios.
“Loose parts encourage creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving,” said Nursery manager Sally Osborn. “They help to build up the child's confidence because there is no right or wrong way to play with them. It's all about exploring, testing, learning and fun.”
Bright Horizons now provides twice-weekly access to Covid-19 lateral flow tests for all staff within our nurseries, in line with the Government’s guidance and protocol for early years settings in England. This marks the latest step in Keeping Everyone Safe within our nurseries.
