Transition Programs

Specially designed transition programs using creative arts to support Preschool, Primary School and High School students to transition from one learning environment to another.

 

We also have transition programs for new parents, people wanting to work for themselves and people wanting to transition into independence.

We are currently delivering programs in pre-schools and schools as a Communities for Children Partner.

CONNECT

Support Programs

Connect with a support worker who meets your needs both in personality and creative interests.

 

Our support workers are all teaching artists and professionals who have access to a wide range of resources including other Kind Art Ed programs.

At the heart of Kind Art Ed is the love of community and the desire to create opportunities.

 

Using a kind and creative approach Kind Art Ed aims to reduce barriers, build capacity and support community growth within a safe environment.

Professional Development

Kind Art Ed is committed to its community, staff and participants, so we offer regular creative learning opportunities to build capacity.

Teaching Artists, Support Workers and Facilitators, often work alone, without the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and supportive team. This was the initial reason that Kind Art Ed was created.

 

We began to provide occasional capacity building and skill sharing opportunities for its team. Creating a place to connect, dare, grow, play and share experiences and expertise while supporting each other.

 

We are currently working on developing these opportunities into some professional development for a wider audience.
