Creative Arts at Wiggles

“Every Child is an Artist” Pablo Picasso

 

Creative play and activities have a central role in a child’s overall learning and development. It is during these early years that a child’s imagination is rapidly increasing. Creative arts are activities that actively engage children’s imagination through art, dance, dramatic play, theater, puppetry, and music. These activities stimulate all areas of the brain including vision, balance, hearing speech, behavior, sensation, cognition, movement and emotion. They are deliberately open-ended, foster divergent thinking, and support the process without particular attention on the product.

At Wiggles and Giggles we encourage and support children in their creative arts and give them the tools they need to express themselves without the fear of failing all while practising the following important skills:

  • fostering creativity
  • expressing feelings and learning communication skills
  • developing, practising and improving coordination and motor skills
  • trying out problem-solving and thinking skills
  • Socialising with peers
