Title: Born Creative – Creative learning in the early years is not just child’s play
Abstract:

Supporters of creative learning argue that it is both more in tune with how children naturally learn and is better preparation for the modern economy. The previous government emphasised the importance of creativity for good teaching and learning, particularly in the early years. The reining in of public finances, combined with skepticism towards the role of government, has brought the role creativity in learning into question. Born creative explores: Can training really make early years professional more creative? Does the curriculum foster creativity? How amenable should public spaces be to young people? In a series of essays Born Creative brings together the experiences of creative practices in early years education, to show the importance of cultures, environments and networks in the enrichment of the early years learning and interrogates the role of leaders, policy and parents in creating them.
