Painting of the week

Painting of the week

Many nursery leaders appreciate that visual calm helps children relax and focus. Yet because celebrating achievement is essential too, practitioners often plaster their walls with artwork. It’s a dilemma.

Staff at Lochgelly Sunflower Nursery found a solution that has turned into a happy tradition: Inside the main entrance stands a framed “Painting of the week”. A special album hanging beside it holds photos of previous “paintings of the week”, each flanked by proud artist and parents.

What a beautiful way to honour each child’s effort!
