Taituri activity in early childhood education
Taituri’s art activity refers to the child’s opportunity to learn different things and experience new experiences through the means of art. The art forms used by the artist are drama, music, spoken word, circus, dance and movement, as well as visual arts. In addition to making, experiencing, experimenting and developing are strongly involved in art.
The goal is for Taituri’s art to be seen as a natural part of the kindergarten in all situations. The task of the educator is to enable and support the child in wondering and making observations. Respect, encounter, presence and lack of urgency are important elements in everyday life.
