Creative Preschool

Professional Instruction. Positive Environment.

The Conservatory of Performing Arts Creative Preschool (CCP) places an emphasis on the arts—music, dance, drama, drawing, painting and more - while still teaching the fundamentals of early language comprehension, numbers and all-important social skills.

Arts-Focused Curriculum

Freedom within limits, respect for the child and others, and independence are the focus in our classroom. Each child will meet curriculum and learning objectives at their own pace with the guidance of experienced teachers. Children will work on practical life skills, science, math, language, fine and gross motor skills, and kindergarten preparation. Focus will be placed on each child's development using the fine arts as our vehicle. Children will sing, dance, paint, draw, act, play instruments and CREATE!

We believe fine arts are an essential aspect in the healthy development of any young person and our approach to the preschool curriculum is holistic, responsive, and developmentally appropriate. The CCP will draw on the resources already present at the Conservatory all to enrich children and yield an early appreciation for the arts in a nurturing environment.
