Children respond much stronger to visual and sonic cues, bright colours and interaction. Numerous studies prove that arts:

  • encourage empathy and interaction
  • stretch the imagination
  • develop important coordination and language skills
  • satisfy educational objectives arcoss the curriculum
  • support literacy and writing
  • enhance social skills such as problem solving, turn taking and active listening
  • impact school attendance in a positive way
  • improve motivation and behaviour
  • and simply allow children to have fun.

We believe art appreciation improves the process of creating. We will use different materials and techniques to create pieces of art. Sometimes it will take a few occasions to complete a project, other times we will finish our work in one session. Children will take home all their art creations by the end of the school year.

Anna Szalai is our special arts teacher at Apple Tree Kindergarten & Nursery. For more information about Anna please see our website:

The movement of judo with its complementary form of motion are suitable for laying a physical base that is a perfect foundation for any other sport and also improve the culture of movement. Moreover it forms a certain manner of living and a certain way of thinking that can be useful for the children through their entire lives.

Crawling, climbing, and rolling are basic movements of little children. These movements can be learned perfectly during judo trainings without any difficulties, for girls and boys alike.
