    "We had a fantastic experience with the Kids Can Act holiday workshops. Cathie Parkes was kind, helpful and professional. She is obviously an experienced educator and really understood our kids.

We can counter this by offering a safe and friendly place to stretch their creativity. By ...

    How to help children learn more through creativity

    Our children are becoming less creative than those of a few decades ago and it could be affecting their ability to learn. Isn’t that a horrifying thought? Studies have shown the children’s creativity tends to decrease with age. Most notably from kindergarten to grade three. The reason is thought to be a combination of strict curriculums combined with standardised tests in schools as well as extra time in front of screens, such as television, computers and smartphones.This is sad news, for the ...

    I am commonly asked why parents should enrol their children into a babies music class. The answer is, that exposing your infants to music is one of the BEST things you can do to bond with your child, as well as increase your little one's language, literacy, numeracy and social skills.  From the time a baby is in the womb the first sense to be developed is that of hearing. You may know that a baby is born knowing their mother’s voice, but were you aware that the way that babies process language ...
