At the preschool age, children are naturally drawn to creativity and exploration. Introducing them to painting at this early stage fosters their artistic expression and plays a pivotal role in their cognitive, emotional, and physical development.

In Kinderland International Preschool @ Cambodia ISS International Academy, children are encouraged to explore and experiment using different painting tools and materials, thus honing their problem-solving skills. Mixing colours, deciding on brush strokes, and creating diverse shapes and patterns nurtures their inventive thinking and encourages them to think outside the box.
