  • LOOKING FORWARD TO FALL! Start with the Arts! Preschool Extension

    NOTE: This class is offered Spring, Fall and Winter quarters.

    Exposure to and engagement in the arts during childhood is essential to developing into a well-rounded, well-educated adult.  Deep engagement in both performing and fine arts has been proven to stimulate school readiness.  Beside helping to develop social, emotional, motor, and language skills, the arts nurture a child’s imagination, expression of thought and persistance in completing tasks.  These are skills which play a critical role in the development of a child’s problem-solving ability and attitude towards learning which will have more impact on success in school and life than a high IQ.

    Our changing culture and national prioritizing of math and language arts above all other disciplines has limited our children’s opportunities in the arts during the school day.  Given the benefits of a childhood that includes the arts, a critical need exists for additional arts opportunities for our young children outside of traditional preschools.  This is the reasoning for Start with the Arts!, a pilot program offered by The Arts Castle and funded by the Delaware County Foundation.

    You may register your child for Start with the Arts! by clicking on this link (To Register for Classes, CLICK HERE) and scrolling down to "Preschool: Start with the Arts."
