Every child is an artist. We believe that the creative arts are a fundamental part of every child’s education. We define the creative arts as music, art, dance and drama, though the impact of the arts goes beyond these curriculum areas. The arts provide opportunities for children to explore their emotions and communicate creatively. They provide unique ways for children to express themselves, as well as to understand the feelings of others’ and the wider world in general. Through experiencing the arts, children develop their own artistic skills and their creativity, as well as the personal qualities of self-esteem and confidence.
