Our arts-integrated morning preschool program provides children with one of their first experiences with school. There is a strong focus on fostering social-emotional skills, adjusting to school routines, being and making a friend, and hands-on “learning by doing” activities, all introduced through the arts! This play-based program is housed in one of our biggest classrooms, allowing for many different centers for students to play in. Centers/manipulatives/toys are rotated daily, providing students with a variety of activities to master different sets of skills. With 3 full time teachers in the class, there is also ample time for individualization and one-on-one work with the Lead Teacher. Students will visit an Art Specialist, along with classroom teachers, each day. The Art Specialists reinforce skills they are learning in the classroom as well as teach and explore new artistic skills.
