Artists at the Centre

Artists At The Centre - Exhibition of Children's Artwork
Exhibit 4

A child care centre is much like a school: both can be thought of as a culture of opportunity."A culture in the biological sense is a place for growing things. Schools, too, are cultures. They are cultures for growing minds, and the direction this growth takes is influenced by the opportunities the school provides. These opportunities are defined by the school's program" (Eisner, 1992).

In the culture of the centres involved with this project, attention is paid to the development of imagination. Fantasies about the most magnificent birthday cake, symbol of the celebration of our coming to be, about castles, about balloons and their many possible stories and endings, are not dismissed as trivial
