The Arts

We believe that each child comes to us with innate creative abilities and sensitivity to the beauty of the natural and created world.  It’s never too early to expose them to the best in art, music and books.  Children often communicate their deepest  thoughts through artistic expression- and we have found that they have a lot to say!  At a point in their life when they aren’t always able to verbalize or certainly use written language- paint, clay and blocks are a way for them to speak without words.  Each day, children are given multiple ways to express themselves. To create, is to take a risk and to sometimes fail.  It can be frustrating, but worth the joy that comes from creating your own unique expression.  This is confidence building and we hope gives each child something to enjoy their whole life.  Classroom art opportunities include:  drawing, painting, sculpting, building, writing, singing, music making, dancing and dramatic play.
