Express yourself – in all kinds of ways!
Today we’d like to talk about expressing yourself…and in particular, giving children the freedom to do just that.
As parents and caregivers, we see children being boxed in, being told to “stay within the lines” and stick with the structured program; which leads to them not having a chance to fully develop their personalities.
At Kids on Beaufort, we have adopted proven theories of early childhood development that suggest children who are given freedom in learning, will become their own teachers. So in order to educate and grow the minds of children at Kids on Beaufort, basically – we are going to let them go WILD!
Okay, maybe not completely wild, we all have to have some boundaries!
But in seriousness, we encourage the children at Kids on Beaufort to lose the seriousness and enjoy the FUN of learning! They want glue sand and leaves onto paper to make artwork? Great! They want to play chef and help chop the vegetables for lunch? Awesome!!
Experiential learning has been proven successful in early childhood development, particularly when the child is given a certain amount of freedom in choosing his or her own pathways to learning.
Which is why at Kids on Beaufort, we are all about CREATIVITY and EXPRESSION in learning.
Because all children are different, unique and special; and they all learn in their own way. So why not let them!
Never does a day go by without us making something – so be prepared for a lot of colourful, glitter-covered, sticky, misshapen, AMAZING and awesome artwork to come home at the end of the day! Trust us, you’ll love them all!
We look forward to sharing the learning journey with your child. If you have any questions about our programs, our centre, our staff or the FUN we have to offer your child, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today!
