Exposing your children to the Arts!

Research has found that getting children involved in the arts early is key to maximising their learning and development potential. It’s not just about learning about the technical aspects of creating beautiful masterpieces, but also the enjoyment from learning the ‘spirit of art.’

Children who are involved in art projects from an early age have been shown to grow up appreciating the beauty around them, and actively learn how to express themselves, their emotions, and feelings in a creative and imaginative way.

Encouraging children to express their emotions and experiences is fundamentally important for laying the foundations for a love of lifelong learning, which is why we promote self-expression through art.

Early Childhood Teacher Miss Trudi says: “Every child’s perspective and creative process is unique, and our early childhood educators encourage your children to expand their skills.

We also understand in an increasingly globalised community it is important to educate children about differing world views and experiences.”

When a child care centre combines the arts with community events, such as entering work into the local show, or venturing out on gallery excursions, your child is utilising both sides of their brain and develop both cognitive, and socialisation skills, while also being exposed to different streams of thought.

"Free the child’s potential and you will transform him into the world" - Maria Montessori.

Recently Bambini Boyne Island entered a raft of children’s artwork into the Gladstone Show. Early Learning Educator Miss Trudi and her children brought home an arm load of blue ribbons, taking out the; first place and Junior Champion 7-9 years Original Lego Piece, first place for the 6 years and under category for their Reconciliation Week bark painting, and first place for their colour painting. Miss Trudi also took out top honours for her Orange cake, and champion for her iced cake.

It’s through these experiences we can guide your child towards a love of lifelong learning, compassion, and connection with their community.
