Cuddles Childcare Centre is unique among Perth childcare facilities, in that we specialise in giving children the opportunity to learn while they play. While play can help children memorise things without even knowing they are “working,” it also affords another great opportunity–connecting with and honouring their own creativity.
Creativity, whether through art, music or storytelling, can be the purest form of self-expression if fostered and nurtured in a healthy way. If a child is allowed to express himself or herself freely without fear of judgement, it will permit them to access and develop their intellect while affirming their emotional health.
The Creative Process and Your Child
If a child is given the opportunity to commit to any creative effort and given the freedom to follow their muse to the end, the results can be truly magical. As adults, we tend to focus on finished products but the real magic is in the process. As a child creates any kind of project, they access parts of the cerebral cortex that aren’t normally accessed.
The experience and process of creating anything can help children learn to solve problems and “think out of the box” when necessary. The creative process can also help a child express and even confront their feelings in a healthy manner. While this isn’t a results-focused process, the results can often give insight, both to parents and teachers, on what a child is thinking and if there are any problems that need to be resolved.
Meanwhile, the child doesn’t know that any of this is happening. All they know is that they are having a great time and making something to show mum and dad.
Cuddles Childcare Centre: Bringing Creative Play to Western Australia
At Cuddles Childcare Centre, we are committed to helping children in Perth and across Western Australia develop both creativity and intellect through play. One great example is Jessie’s Art Time.
Jessie’s Art Time is just as it sounds–a weekly art period that provides your children with the opportunity to engage in creative activities. These activities are simple but provide the chance for your child to access their creative side while having fun.
