Helping Children Express Creativity in Orlando Daycare

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Children are naturally drawn to arts and crafts. Exploring different materials and ways to express themselves is all part of finding their creativity. One way to encourage open-minded, experimental, self-motivated and unique artwork is to present children with process-oriented art.

When involved in process-oriented art, no two children create the same thing. It is through the doing that children learn so much: problem solving, experimentation, expression, and innovation. Basically any art project that doesn’t have an end idea or pattern to follow is process art.

Our parents love the artwork that their children create so much that they often look for ways to store or display it. Everyone does this differently. Some place them all around the house until new pieces come along, and then they get stored in bins or filing folders. Some parents choose to take photos or the artwork to keep instead of the actual piece. Kid’s art is often more about the process than the product, so try not to feel too guilty about not storing every one.

At Kids & Company in Orlando, FL, we like to give children the time to express themselves through arts and crafts. Whether it is during our part time care, full time care, or after school programs, creating and exploring is an important part of our process.

Kids & Company offers so much more than the typical Orlando daycare. Free hot meals, free PM transportation, after school care until 7p.m., and we even have the option for Saturday and night care at our Curry Ford location. With three locations around Orlando, there is a convenient location for you and your child. If you have any questions about our programs, including: infant care, childcare, voluntary prekindergarten (VPK), or after school programs, give us a call at (407) 227-1015.
