Fine Arts Preschool Program

What does the Fine Arts Preschool look like this year? Watch our COVID training video for our preschool program.

The Fine Arts Preschool provides children, ages 3½ to 6, with rich opportunities to experience dance, music, drama, creative writing, literature, and the visual arts. Hands-on involvement in three to four art forms daily helps children grow through experience and find joyful ways to express themselves, nurturing development of the whole child. The Fine Arts Preschool Program offers a 2-Day (Tuesday/Thursday), 3-Day (Monday/Wednesday/Friday), or 5-Day (Monday-Friday) option.
