Little Painter’s Preschool

Our Little Painter’s Preschool offers an environment where children are eager to learn and gain the tools they need to thrive in future educational settings. The Art Spark knows the value of this time in a child’s development and has created a hands on, play-based, creative curriculum. We work to constantly find ways to help our preschoolers understand each other, and effectively explore the world around them.  

Our Preschool program is designed to foster your child’s educational development as we focus on important subjects:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • History
  • Science
  • Art and Music

While also working to foster your child as a whole with focus in the following areas: 

  • Decision Making
  • Character Building
  • Social Interaction
  • Creative Play
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Being a Friend
  • and more!

The Art Spark preschool program follows a hands-on, play-based curriculum which will fosters your child’s development in reading, math, science, and ART!  Each class we will follow this schedule:

9:00-9:15 Free draw + Calendar Time + Weather
9:15-9:45 Educational Lesson Focused in Reading, Math, History, Science, Art, Music. We typically incorporate question-based learning to build off what our preschoolers already know.
9:45-10:00 Letter of the day. We may practice writing the letter, finding the letter in books, objects, and art materials, as well as list words that include or start with that letter! 
Some examples of themes we have explored include: food, friendship, families, games, clothing, and more!
10:00-10:15 AM Snack Time
10:15-10:30 Play Time (Sensory Play, Painting, Building Activities, Practice with Patterns, Sorting Activities, and more which will rotate monthly)
10:30-11:30 Art Project Relevant to Educational Content. Art is an amazing tool that can help your child develop in areas including: creativity, brainstorming, planning, strengthening fine motor skills, decision making, and so much more! 

Why at Art Spark?: Our bright, cheerful and spacious classroom is perfectly set up to accommodate small groups of children. We will stick to a 6:2 student teacher ratio to safely follow Covid-19 guidelines and make sure your child is getting the attention they need. That means we will offer just 3-6 students in a group with one or two of our talented teachers! Our teachers have a degree focused on K-12 art education, but our 10 + years of experience with preschoolers in our programs has given us expertise and tools to help your child learn, play, grow, and thrive!

Daily/Weekly Summaries: We send home a detailed summary of each lesson completed at The Art Spark. We also suggest activities that can be completed at home to supplement their class offerings.

Ages: 3.5-5 yrs. (All children must be potty-trained.)
