  • We believe in…Children as purposeful, powerful, inspiring and intelligent human beings in their own right.The importance of nurturing children’s innate creative potential from birth.The transformational ways in which creative approaches and environments can help develop children’s social, emotional, cultural and intellectual capacities.The power of collaborations that connect early years, arts and cultural people, ideas, resources and knowledge to spark off perspectives that bring children’s learning to life.The empowering of professionals to have confidence in their own creative leadership skills.The important role of families in supporting children’s play, helping them to make sense of themselves and their cultural identities.The importance of rigor, research and quality in all creative practice.Our collective and individual responsibility to do everything we can to help children to be confident, competent, expressive, purposeful, responsible, well balanced and happy.
  • So, if we want well rounded children and young people, with a sense of emotional and mental health, a genuine sense of place and identity, a sense of belonging and of happiness, as well and language, sensory and motor skills, then we need to start from birth.By opening up creative opportunities for babies, we are preparing them to be the future creative thinkers, confident communicators, strong team players, motivated individuals, inspired artists and scientists, as well as healthy economists. But more importantly than that, we are also allowing them time and space to be and become, to let their natural dispositions emerge with the confidence and self assuredness that comes with being a young explorer.
