At Park Place Daycare, a daycare in Brooklyn, New York, we believe that the level of intellect and creativeness among children vary. However, they can nourish both intelligence and creativeness if they are exposed to proper learning conditions.
So how can we provide these proper conditions for our toddlers? Here are some of the ways:
- Set up a creative space
A creative environment encourages children to “think outside the box” and come up with new ideas. Creative activities at home or school should emphasize the generation of new ideas rather than their evaluation.
- Supply them with creative resources
Aside from providing them with art tools to aid in their creative process, time is the most important resource for generating innovative ideas. Proper childcare should also include time for children to engage in unstructured play that is both child-directed and supervised.
- Suspend the idea of rewarding
The idea that we have to reward our child for showing creativity might interfere with the whole creative process. Instead of relying on rewards to keep your child motivated, encourage him or her to find motivation from within.
In our preschool in New York, you can be assured that all these conditions are met to ensure that we nurture your child’s learning development. Give us a call today to learn more about the programs we offer.
