The Little School offers a Young Artists Studio Program for preschool aged children. For our full day enrolled preschoolers, the art program is part of their summer curriculum.
We open our summer arts programming for preschool aged children (33 months to 5 years). Children may attend 3 or 5 mornings a week, 8:15 to 11. There are two 3 week sessions. Children may attend either one or two sessions. Our Young Artist’s Program is held in our Studio Classroom. The remainder of your child’s day is held in our spacious preschool classrooms.
