Arts4Tots Preschool

Why Arts4Tots?

Children have access to our classroom center and professional Music, Theatre, Visual Arts & Dance Studios. We hire professional clinicians for dance, music, visual arts, and drama to instruct our tots.

A curriculum inspired by Montessori that emphasizes sensory, cultural, and unique aspects of learning creatively. Daily programs foster imagination and creativity through weekly themes such as “Celebrate Culture.”

We are a dedicated classroom teaching our young children about daily weather, the alphabet, the calendar, and reading. We introduce learning stations that focus on science, math, reading, and fine motor skills. We track our young children’s development with progress reports twice a year.

Parents appreciate our emphasis on the arts, both in indoor and outdoor lesson environments, and the variety of arts we introduce into our young children’s daily routine.
