Creativity  & Art

 

Children have a natural abundance of creativity and vibrant imagination. We believe in fostering these innate abilities that children have by giving them opportunities to express themselves through creativity, art and play. What's important in any creative act is the process of self-expression. Creative experiences such as art, music, dance and playtime can help children express and cope with their feelings in a healthy way. Creativity also fosters mental growth in children by providing opportunities for trying out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem-solving.  

Children naturally are drawn to vibrant colors, and they love to play. We encourage children to play dress-up for special events as their favorite cartoon or super-hero characters, as this brings them joy and is fun for them, as well as their families. Dressing up in colorful costumes as various characters, getting their face and body painted is a fun way for children to learn creative self-expression.
