Join us as we shine a light on the diverse ways that services encourage children to explore, play and learn through experiential engagement in the arts.

During Childhood Services Week we are encouraging services to hold their own Festival of the Arts, providing lots of opportunities for children to engage in different arts experiences that enrich children’s learning and support their holistic development.

Art activities such as music and dance, junk art, malleable materials, drawing, painting, storytelling and drama allow children make choices, use their imaginations, fantasise and take risks. Skills which they will bring with them into adulthood along with an understanding and appreciation of the arts.

Using #ChildhoodArts, services will be invited to share images of children engaging in a range of different forms of art. We will provide suggested themes and activities for the week, songs to learn and events to participate in. All helping to support the wonderful work carried out in childhood services across the island and to showcase children enjoying diverse art activities on a daily basis.
