What programming do you provide?
Jump Start with the Arts can be tailored to your needs.
We offer small group enrichment classes with master teaching artists. We understand your little ones have lots of energy, short attention spans, and want to participate. Our programs are not lectures or demonstrations.
Art forms may include drama (acting out stories), music, singing, dancing, and simple visual arts. These are taught in short time blocks over multiple dates. We provide follow-on materials for extended learning with school teachers, family members, or caregivers.
We also offer performances by world-class artists for school assemblies. Culturally varied, these programs help round out a child's perspective of the world and models acceptance and understanding of diversity.
About Jump Start with the Arts
Jump Start with the Arts is an early childhood arts enrichment program. Our goal is to provide a jump-start to healthy and joyful social and cognitive development in the early stages of learning and to provide young children with memorable, educational, developmentally appropriate, and culturally diverse experiences through the Arts.
The selection of artists on our roster is based on artistic excellence and proven ability to connect successfully with pre-school age audiences, as well as educators and parents. Download the Carpe Diem "Jump Start with the Arts" brochure here.
