Creative Kindy provides an early learning experience for pre-kindy and pre-prep children with a focus on creative play based, enriching activities. The program is delivered by qualified educators and is suitable for children from 3 years and over. Sessions run for 2 hours and give children who might have missed the Kindy cut off dates an opportunity to get more out of their week and gain valuable play based learning skills and social interactions.
Creative Kindy’s philosophy is to work with each child’s unique qualities and abilities, through play based learning, which opens up possibilities for them to express their personality and uniqueness, enhance their curiosity and creativity, make connections between prior experiences and new learning, develop relationships and stimulate a sense of wellbeing. We believe that providing a supportive environment that is rich in play where children can ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking helps children to expand their thinking and enhance their desire to know and to learn, promoting a positive disposition towards learning and themselves.
The team at Tiny Art specialises in helping kids discover the world of art making. Children naturally love to express themselves through art. Over our years of experience as teachers, we’ve learned that nurturing this attraction to creativity at an early age gives kids a developmental head start – physically, emotionally & intellectually.
Kids learn, play and express themselves through art.
Tiny Art is a dynamic Brisbane-based children’s art school with teachers who understand that little minds contain big imaginations! Our art classes are encouraging and inclusive, helping kids consolidate their creative skills and stretching them to learn new ways to express their feelings and ideas using art.
Tiny Art was founded in 2011 by Debra Bryant, a qualified art teacher with a passion for art education. After having her own family, Debra saw the important developmental benefits that can come from early sharing of artistic experiences. Tiny Art participants develop confidence, self expression, fine motor skills and so much more as they explore everything from drawing to textiles, clay and collage.

Join a team of up to 4 students, build and create your own Digital Technology project and enter it into the competition, showcase your idea alongside other students work and pitch your project to our ICT industry professionals and University academia who are our judges on the day.
