The arts are a necessary part of a child’s development and a strong aspect of Puddleducks’ philosophy. Through the arts (drama, storytelling, puppets, music, art and craft) children develop confidence in sharing their thoughts, feelings and ideas through a wide range of different mediums. Children take part in science, reading, literature, carpentry, cooking, gardening, information technology, body movement and physical education.
At Puddleducks’ there are planned opportunities for play of the highest quality. Children have fun and learn at the same time, guided by skilled professionals who know how to extend their thinking during play. Children move between activities, exercising choices, developing independence and confidence. They learn about the world and start to understand how it works.
Yes, they play a lot –that’s why they learn such a lot too!
