Creativity and the Arts in early years  Thursday 16 June 2022 at 7pm

Creativity is an essential part of every child’s growth and development, and equips them with skills they can use in every area of life. Join PACEY in conversation with Ruth Churchill Dower, Director of Earlyarts as we explore the importance of creativity. We will discuss how the arts support physical, social, emotional and cognitive development and how you can build your own creative confidence as well as nurture children's innate creativity.
