Easy, Fun and Free – New Early Years resources now available!

We’re thrilled to announce that five new Early Years resources for pre-school and early primary school educators are now available on ARTS:LIVE. These new programs offer educators a variety of Arts Learning activities and ideas to stimulate the imagination, encourage creative play and support children’s development.

Produced with the support of the Ian Potter Foundation, these fun, colourful and immersive courses feature songs, videos and animations to spark children’s creativity and curiosity.  All resources feature easy-to-follow activity guides that are ready for immediate use.

You don’t need to be an Arts Learning expert. Our courses are developed by working collaboratively with Early Years educators, to provide easy, relevant and engaging activities.

Our digital platform provides everything you need to bring Arts Learning to life in your Early Learning Centre or school.
