Having their own ideas!

August 14th, 2012

Our Pre school children use their imagination to create and build a fire engine using milk crates and drain pipes.                                                                                                                                                      “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution” Albert Einstien

Imagination in the creative process is more than just creating a mental picture of something. It means using flexible thought to combine ideas in new ways, going beyond what is expected or routine to think of a new approach and expanding from the know to something beyond.
