Art plays an important part in Valley Drive’s preschool program and is integrated into most Valley Drive activities. It contributes to our children’s creative development and supports skills in many other areas. Making art can be a science activity, language activity, or math activity. It can help children develop social skills, engage in sensory exploration, practice fine muscle control, and strengthen eye-hand-motor control. Art activities give children a chance to make choices and solve problems in an atmosphere where freedom of expression is encouraged.
