How old is she? And how many free hours does she have? Does she have ample time for unstructured play? Filling up all a young child's time is actually not very good as she will have less time to invent creative ways to fill her time. Being bored is actually a good motivator for creativity.

At 3yo, I wouldn't bother with many programmes, maybe just 1 or 2 at most. I know many don't agree with me, but 'programmes' and 'creativity' often act against each other.
