We encourage creative development through activities that are meaningful and relevant to a child’s life experiences. Young children express ideas in many different ways, including words, gestures, drawings, paintings, sculpture, construction, music, dramatic play, movement, and dance.

As children apply their knowledge in the real world, Bigelow also seeks to make a connection between classroom, community and citizenship.
