Arts Enrichment Preschool


Two-Day-A-Week Program

This two-day-a-week program offers an enriching, creative learning environment for your preschool aged child to embark on a journey of imagination and discovery.

Arts Adventures uses an arts-based teaching structure and child-centered learning environment, where the emphasis is on the process, allowing children to think and solve problems creatively. The arts of dance, music, visual art, drama, and literature are natural disciplines that help children grow through experience and find joyful, positive, and varied ways to express themselves with confidence.

Professional instructors will guide students in the exploration and appreciation of the arts, with preschool social and academic skills integrated into the process.

Children will have opportunities to engage their mind, body, and imagination, while creating new connections within their dynamic world, nurturing the "whole child." Related walking field trips, such as sculpture walks, and museum visits will enhance this experience and reinforce cognitive development.

Life skills are cemented by "doing" and children learn best through hands-on involvement. What an extraordinary gift we can give our children by allowing them to experience life through the arts.
