Art to Heart, Early Childhood Creativity


Arts Everyday

Both parents and educators stress the importance of making the arts part of young children's everyday experience. At Gateway Association Child Development Center in Anderson (IN), the arts facilitate learning for children with a variety of abilities and needs. A Louisville father and artist emphasizes the importance of parents spending time with their young children. Two programs designed to encourage parents to read to young children-Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and Reach Out and Read, founded by Boston pediatrician Barry Zuckerman-are showcased. At a library branch in Lexington, Kentucky, an arts project called Bilingual Boogie Bees brings neighbors and cultures together.
