This summer, trade in your beach ball for a book! Books have the power to spark the imagination and engage creativity. Children should be excited by literature and find themselves captivated by what each book has to offer. This is precisely the mission of our featured activity provider, Connection to Creativity.
About Connection to Creativity
Connection to Creativity believes every child should possess reading and comprehension skills at their grade level or higher. So they strive to create youth programs that inspire, provoke and build imagination, and spark reading comprehension. They offer fantastic, engaging programs for kids in Pre-K all through Elementary.
Now an environment of educational support and fun for all children, Connection to Creativity got its start out of a need to help a struggling child. On how Connection to Creativity began, the founder says:
Connection to Creativity grew out of a need to help my eldest son Aliko develop his reading skills. Aliko’s challenges with reading were negatively impacting his schoolwork. This sparked within me the desire to support him and other kids with similar challenges. Together, we discovered that because every child learns differently, presenting reading opportunities with a creative, inspired and interactive lens allowed them to connect with the content better. Ultimately, this helps children achieve a rich, comprehensive reading experience. Thus, in 2015, Connection to Creativity was born.
