The driving philosophy behind our program, and one that sets us apart from other daycares, is that children should experience the world around them. In that regard, we strive to spend over half the time the children are with us during the day outside. That includes playing in our playgrounds, turning lunch into picnics, visiting local farms, going on nature walks at local parks, and so on. Getting to explore the outdoors benefits the children in so many ways, to include:

  • Building confidence
  • Enhancing physical health
  • Assisting in attention and cognitive capacities
  • Developing creativity
  • Stimulating various senses
  • Reducing stress and fatigue
  • Improving motor skills
  • Encouraging a healthy lifestyle
  • Teaching resiliency
  • Inspiring curiosity
  • Letting kids be kids!

When not outside, we provide children at Creative Arts Preschool a varied curriculum that includes art, music and motion, and language arts (with foreign language instruction). These three modalities of instruction have been proven as the best way for children at this age to learn and develop their cognitive abilities.
