Creative DevelopmentCreative Development: Children should be able to respond in a variety of ways to what they see, hear, smell, touch and feel. Imaginative play, pictures, paintings and constructions all help to develop these creative skills, however the emphasis should be on the enjoyment, expression and learning that takes place rather than on the final product.
