Benefits of Crafts in Story Times

 


Developmental Benefits of Art

In our Story Times, we often incorporate creative activities.  We practice this approach in order to provide building blocks of child development.  The arts promote skills that are important in academic, career and life success.  Arts and crafts also open a child’s eyes to a new world of possibilities and independent thinking.
Here are just a few reasons why we use crafts and arts as part of our regular programming


Motor Skills: Scribbling with a crayon, learning to hold scissors, manipulating paintbrushes are all helpful dexterity skills that later translate into learning to write.

Homeschooling Meet n' Greet

 

 Our second Home School Meet n' Greet event will take place on Monday, November 9th at 1 p.m.

Homeschooling Meet n' Greet

We had a great turn out for our Homeschooling Meet n' Greet session.


Parents and caretakers were able to exchange information about their experience with homeschooling, curriculum, talk about challenges and successes.  

If you or a family you know would like to connect with other homeschooling families in the area, please come to our next Homeschool Meet n' Greet in November.
