Toddler Art with ‘Strength Heroes’
Age 2-4 (8 weeks)
6th August 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$145
Fun, engaging and creative workshops for the tiny tots and not so tiny tots – with a weekly DOSE of resilience. Our Toddler Art program is designed to explore and celebrate what makes these little ones unique through a playful and creative exploration of key strengths including curiosity, bravery, love of learning and kindness. We will support you to equip your child with a growth mindset through fun, art and play.
These sessions will support your child in developing their sense of identity as strong, confident and involved learners. Our program features hands-on activities with connections to the early years learning framework and positive psychology.
Connection – Child and special adult create together – research that has found that “Early childhood arts and cultural activities can significantly strengthen parent-child bonds and engage families in their children’s learning, providing a positive focus for shared experience and communication.” (Ipsos Mori, 2009)
Confidence and self esteem is supported and encouraged as we identify your child’s strengths
