Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Preschool of the Arts, we believe passionately that learning should be an adventure. Your child's experience is bounded only by his or her imagination and dreams.

Our curriculum is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, which encourages young children and their teachers to explore, question, and discover in a stimulating environment. Children express interests and ideas, research for further information, reflect on the experience and form conclusions. Through this process, children develop confidence and independence with encouragement from parents, teachers and community members.
