Why Choose Adventure Arts Academy?
Music and the Arts Enhances Learning Like Nothing Else
Researchers agree that music and movement, which is a major part of our program, broadens learning and touches the brain like nothing else, triggering new neural connections that help in mathematics and even fine motor skills. At Adventure Arts Academy, when adding these artistic elements, along with creative play, academic learning becomes second nature.
Choose Your Days
Families can reserve anywhere from 2 - 5 days per week. Whether you work part-time or full-time, or just desire a fantastic few days of learning for your preschooler, we're here for you!

We're delighted to bring the best of all worlds in our bright and cozy home. We love the warmth and consistency, structure and spontaneity, and a program that includes everything most parents of preschoolers are looking for.
