Art has traditionally been an important part of early childhood programs. Developmental Theorist Friedrich Froebel, the father of kindergarten, believed that young children should be involved in both making their own art and enjoying the art of others. To Froebel, art activities were important, not because they allowed teachers to recognise children with unusual abilities, but because they encouraged each child’s “full and all-sided development” (Froebel, 1826).
The Arts involves, painting and drawing, Music, dance and playing instruments, drama, puppetry and appreciation of the arts of others
In Early Childhood ‘The Arts’ helps children’s socio-emotional development; it helps with cognitive development and fine motor skills, besides the sheer joy of creating and performing.
