Our Fine Arts Preschool program encourages children to develop social skills and talents at a young age. We welcome ages 30 Months to 5 years of age to learn to express themselves through the Fine Arts. Students will enjoy a different theme each week as we provide academic curriculum to assist with their learning. The goal of this fine arts preschool program is to enhance your child’s overall development and to improve social, cognitive and emotional awareness all while having fun.
Our classes incorporate dance, fitness, music, drama, art and story telling in a safe and positive environment to encourage development of motor skills, cognitive function, emotional and social awareness. Each day the students will explore topics such as animals, seasons, feelings, manners, healthy foods, sports, science and much more. We interact and teach our students every moment of every day.

Each month we provide a new theme that sparks the imagination and inspires children to learn new skills. Our themes this year include: Fall Festivities, Circus, Kings & Queens, Winter Wonderland, Animal Safari, Rainbows & Rainclouds, Under the Sea, World of Sports & Olympics and Space.
Within each theme children will be introduced to numbers, colours, shapes, patterns, counting and the letters of the alphabet. For example, children will learn the alphabet by signing, posing like the letters, moving like the letters and finally learning how to write the letters. This approach of more hands on learning allows children to learn through their bodies so they can remember it in their minds.
