applY Now for 2019-20 preschool!
Arts Together’s Multi-Arts Preschool is the only area program to use an arts-integrated curriculum developed to meet Head Start outcomes and N.C. Department of Education standards for kindergarten readiness. Through small classes with low student-to-teacher ratios, children gain confidence in their unique abilities and explore their own creativity and developing sense of self-expression.
Our arts-based curriculum builds a strong foundation for learning by using art, drama, music and dance/movement alongside other interactive, educational activities such as science, math, cooking, literacy and language. These enriching classroom experiences promote cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth in our students. Snack time is held in a community atmosphere where the children provide snack for the class on a rotating schedule. Outdoor time is also part of each day, weather permitting.
Arts Together’s daily preschool is divided into two programs: Young 3-Year-Olds and Children Ages 3½ - 5.

Preschool Referral Program
BE AN ARTS AMBASSADOR!
Arts Together’s Preschool Referral Program is a special incentive for our current preschool families to spread the word about our Multi-Arts Preschool! So many of you already share about your child’s preschool experience at Arts Together with friends, neighbors and family members. YOU are our best arts ambassadors, and we want to acknowledge this important fact by showing our appreciation!
HOW IT WORKS
Current Arts Together preschool families will receive $100 OFF their yearly tuition if they refer our multi-arts program to a friend or family member, who then enrolls their child in our preschool! On the preschool application form, there is a spot where families can write the name of the person who referred them to our program.
So don’t be shy about sharing why our Multi-Arts Preschool is one-of-a-kind!
Discover everything our Multi-Arts Preschool has to offer your child by scheduling a tour with Preschool Director Brenda Howe! A tour is a great way to see our program in action and can help determine if Arts Together’s Preschool is the right fit for your child.
