From bacteria to galaxies – an exciting new exhibition
Reflections Nursery & Forest School on Richmond Road, Worthing is holding an exhibition of 10 years of children’s learning from 7th to 11th November.
The Mayor of Worthing, Councillor Sean McDonald will officially open the event at St Paul’s Art Centre on Chapel Road at 12.30pm on Monday 7th November. The exhibition is a celebration of ten years of children’s project work at the nursery and features over 50 panels of documentation, films of children at work in the forest and nursery, and artefacts made by the children.
Reflections Nursery was awarded UK Nursery of the Year in 2009/10 and has been judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted at the last three inspections. They also won Worthing Business of the Year in 2010/11 and Southern Business of the Year 2011/12.
Reflections draws its inspiration from the world-renowned pre-schools of Reggio Emilia and from the forest nurseries of Denmark. Children at the nursery work on long-term projects often created by themselves and are supported in their work by qualified artists and educators.
Nursery Director, Martin Pace explained why the exhibition would be of interest, “Isn’t it fascinating just how chidlren learn? We think so; and we want to share the children’s astonishing ideas with local families. Come and experience for yourself the amazing ways in which children think and express themselves.”
The exhibition will appeal to local families and anyone working in the arts or education and will run from 7th to 11th of November at St Paul’s from 9.00am until 4.00pm daily. Admission is free of charge.
