Dr. Kerry Freedman, Head of Art and Design Education at Northern Illinois University. "Children need to know more about the world than just what they can learn through text and numbers. Art education teaches students how to interpret, criticize, and use visual information, and how to make choices based on it."
The Rosemount curricullum has a balanced mix of Group Outdoor Play, Indoor Play, Structured Play, Creative Arts like drawing & painting and Performing Arts like Music and Dance and Dramatics.
Simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.
