“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson (TED Talk)

How do we engage a child’s imagination, ingenuity, innovation and couple it with a passion for their education?

Amid the pressures of standardised testing and reporting, it is easy to forget the voices of both parents and educators across the planet who are urging a different path. Educators like Sir Ken Robinson actively advocate for education reformation to engage a child’s natural propensity toward imagination, ingenuity, and innovation. We agree with Sir Ken – it is time for kids to get creative!

At EDwoodUCATION we strive to engage, empower and extend your child’s learning with our quality holiday programs, fostering a passionate interest in life-long exploration and learning, and we major in FUN! We measure our success in your child’s smiles.
