Offerings for Early Learners

The Community Arts School believes in the importance of beginning students early in arts education. Through discovery, experimentation and playing, students begin developing their social and emotional skills, language skills, problem-solving skills and early literacy skills. In addition, creative movement and imaginative play foster growth with a students’ sensory and motor skills.

We offer programming for early learners in the areas of Dance, Music and Theatre.
