Water play is a sensory experience that can include all children. This however can be dangerous for some ages so we have to break the activity into age groups. Younger children will have low levels of water outdoors that will be supervised. This teaches the children on how water feels- the children can also splash the water with the other children. The older children can go to bigger areas such as excursions to ponds or picking up rocks out of the water. This will also be supervised.
ART FOR ALL: Our community programs provide an inclusive artistic environment for children and families regardless of means or ability, to create, learn about and enjoy art in a recreational setting. (Image: CMA Permanent Collection).
I believe that children learn through play – by participating and doing things for themselves (hands on experiences), by watching and imitating others, and by socialising with others (both peers and adults) and should be given opportunities to do so
