Mindfulness is a popular method to use with children to help them learn to center themselves, become aware of their emotions, and improve focus. After an overview of what mindfulness is, Toni will review mindfulness activities.
Once a month, The Cottage School hosts Mondays on Education. It’s an opportunity for the parents of children who attend the school as well as members of the community to come together and discuss important topics on education.
A core belief at The Cottage School is that art, in all forms, be it visual arts, music, dance, imaginative play or drama, positively influences children in their physical, affective and cognitive development, their desire to learn and their love for school.
The process of creativity and expression is one that should not be oppressed, Creativity is an instinct and a need for all and it is imperative that we allow children the time to create. Art enables children to be critical, innovative thinkers, to problem solve, create, communicate, express and experiment. Art helps children to develop inventive and productive ways to think outside the box, and is an indispensable tool when it comes to developing physical, cognitive and social skills.
