At Endeavour Early Education we know that early childhood language development is instrumental in aiding a child’s overall brain development. Our Child Development Program teaches our children a foreign language at a young age as and it lays the foundation for lifelong academic achievement. Research confirms that learning a foreign language early helps stimulate children’s minds and gives them a positive attitude about learning languages and others. Our children engage with qualified language teachers to enable our children to reap the rewards of learning another language.
Endeavour has partnered with registered and internationally acclaimed music therapists across our locations to facilitate music therapy programs for our children, all part of our child development program.
Music Therapy is a Healthcare Profession. There is a body of scientific and academic research that states music therapy programs can help to enhance a child’s developmental functions. We want our children to reap the many benefits that music therapy for children provides.
- Improving the health and wellbeing of our children;
- Increasing their social skills;
- Developing their cognitive awareness;
- Improving their language skills; and
- Providing our children with opportunities for self-expression.
Music uses the whole brain as music is processed on both sides of the brain. When a person is engaged in musical activities, the brain is actively firing more neurons and increasing the opportunity for development and learning.
Art is a lot of fun, but there is so much more to art. Young minds can learn by exploring art and creating artworks. Children develop fundamental life skills through art.
At Endeavour Early Education we have created child care art programs that are enriching and encourage social skills. Our children make their own art and learn to enjoy the art of others. Our child care art program encourages a child’s complete development. Our curriculum includes activities that will help children develop their skills in communicating, problem-solving and socialising, as well as enhance their fine motor skills and self-expression abilities.
Creating art allows children to work through feelings and emotions. Referring to a finished piece of artwork helps a child talk about their feelings in a new and meaningful way. Art also develops a child’s creativity; rather than being told what to do, answers and directions come from the child. Art is an experience that requires free-thinking, experimentation and analysis — all part of creativity.
