Daily Tip: Creative Development & Culture
Creative development is the process of developing creative abilities through exploration, decision making and expression. In early childhood education, we promote children's regular engagement in the following experiences to develop creativity:
- Creative Movement and Dance
- Visual Arts
It's important to avoid forcing any one form of art on young children. Provide opportunities for them to explore all developmentally appropriate art forms and genres. This best practice incorporates cultural responsiveness and enables each child to discover their individual talents, preferences and abilities.
