Fostering Imagination in Early Education
Einstein once said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Wise words considering imagination opens the gateway to possibilities, ambition and from a very early age, helps children understand the world around them. That’s where Kids Club Northern Beaches comes in, bringing the play to meet your kids’ imagination.
It’s why young children will mimic Mum and Dad on the phone with a block of Duplo Lego, or jump in a cardboard box on an epic voyage to the moon.
Imagining leads to creativity, which is integral not only for activities like artistic and musical expression, but also for science, maths, social and emotional intelligence. Creativity, however, is not an innate talent, it’s a skill we can develop, which is why imaginative play should not be undervalued especially in a child’s early years.
Because ninety percent of a child’s brain development happens before the age of five, early childhood educators like Kids Club Child Care have a big role to play in constructing stimulating play spaces that foster a hungry and eager mind.
Every Kids Club centre is built around the concepts of child-led, play based learning and Kids Club Early Learning centre in our very own Northern Beaches is no different.
“A great deal of planning, thought and research goes into what we call our stimulating play zones at Kids Club,” self-confessed Director of Fun, Corie Stone says.
“We purposefully place features that reflect the real world around us that typically kids don’t get to play with to stimulate their minds and break up the monotony of playing with regular toys. This includes things like our cut in half Rolls Royce in Kids Club Surry Hills centre and our Cessna plane in Rosebery.”
The idea of the world around them also takes on a local flavour at every centre. This is especially reflective of Kids Club Northern Beaches centre, which features a beach culture inspired beach house, a retro VW with surfboards and even a realistic ‘Cromer Wharf’.
“From day one of our very first centre opening, we wanted to create spaces that even adults would find wondrous and captivating and with our centre in the Northern Beaches, inspired by our local surrounds, we’ve really taken this to the next level.”
“From picking up your friends to go to the beach in a bright yellow kombi to docking at Cromer Wharf to go fishing at our makeshift shore, there are a lot of great stories going on there,” adds Corie.
Everything at Kids Club is derived from their ‘Education for Life’ Philosophy, from their stimulating and creative play spaces to the exclusive nutritious Annabel Karmel meals prepared on-site.
Kids Club Northern Beaches develops key social, cognitive and motor skill milestones through varied intentional teaching experiences based on the premise of learning through play.
