    New guidelines (Department for Education, 1995., School Curriculum Assessment Authority, 1996 and Department for Education and Skills (DfES, 2006) placed upon settings, stipulates that children should be given the opportunities to communicate ideas, express feelings, observe, experiment, design, create and imagine. I feel that children are being raised in a society with many sources of enriching learning experiences and diversity and good early years practice needs to sustain this from early childhood. Staff need to work continuously to create an encouraging learning environment and I feel that emphasis should also be put on the training of staff who work with children, providing and supporting opportunities for creative development (Council for Awards in child Care and Education,…
