HOTA believes in generating active participation in the art process, accessing one’s own creativity and the creativity of others.
We believe in the power of art and play to unite, challenge, delight and transform our world.
Our Early Years program is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework to support and enrich children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transition to formal schooling.
