Creative activities can help build children's abilities to be calm, focused and expressive.
Every child is unique. They all learn, connect and experience the world around them in a variety of different ways. Through play, children can explore, experiment and challenge their abilities.
There are some great local providers of free or low cost creative activities to suit you and your children.
