Abstract

There are challenges associated with the general tendency for children’s creative abilities to decline during the transition stage, that is, when children start attending school (e.g. Tunik, 2004). We expect that this tendency will be more acute for children who experience migration due to the added pressure of adaptation processes (which are more complex than transitions for example, to school). The longitudinal studies carried out by Carroll (2004 – 2008) in Russia proved that children’s creative abilities develop significantly better if children were engaged in special activities, designed to develop their creative abilities (Gatanov’s programme), hence we propose to pilot an adapted version of this programme with children, who attend Eastern European Supplementary School and compare their outcomes with children Russia and British children (whose both parents are also British) as equivalent control groups
