Want the best for their child
Help children to develop their creativity, so they can create their own success.
Every parent wants the best for the child. Every parent has a slightly different idea of what this is: some combination of happiness, good health, financial security, and personal fulfilment.
A strong body of research shows that children are born very creative, but that this creativity needs to be nurtured and developed, or it will wither away. We also know that when children can develop strong, loving attachments with their parents and carers, it has very significant impacts on just about every aspect of their development: brain development, emotional well-being, learning development etc. And children love to play with their parents and carers, from whom they learn so much in their early lives.
Children are born creative. Creating together with them will help give them the best futures.

Your imagination is free. Special times with your children are priceless. Sometimes you pay for professional artists, but the impressions they leave on children can last a lifetime.
Children are born highly creative and then early years experiences can shape our brains: to be more creative, or less so. 75% of a child’s brain cell connections are formed at age 0-3, influencing the rest of their lives.
Creative arts can build confidence, develop rounded personalities, unlock human qualities like expression, support development in language, maths and other areas, and help children to engage with education and learning.
