imagine that

Toddlers are creative, artistic and imaginative, and by enhancing their development in these areas, we help them learn how to make choices and decisions, understand cause and effect, and further develop their critical thinking skills. Imagine That takes toddlers on a journey through the visual and dramatic arts, music, dance and creative movement. Toddlers nurture their creativity and imagination and investigate the world through their senses. By playing instruments, dancing to various types of music, and exploring paint, clay and other materials, teachers help toddlers explore the arts and build their imagination and creative skills.
