Learning through the Arts: Music, Art, Dance & Drama

2023-2024 Preschool Registration open!
5 days/week!

Introduce your child to learning through a special arts-integrated curriculum! Arts-based learning emphasizes creativity, imagination, exploration, and active participation. The arts add depth to fundamental concepts, reinforcing comprehension and memory. Children must be 3 years old and potty-trained before the first day of preschool.

Students will benefit from:
- High-quality arts-enriched learning activities with professional Teaching Artists
- Small class size and two Teaching Artists all day
- Traditional preschool activities such as circle time, free play and outdoor play
- Multi-week units of core curriculum developed by a certified teacher
- Learning responsibility and cooperation by working with peers

Mornings available!
  -  3 year-olds who are potty-trained may register for a morning session each day

Please call (610) 358-3632 or contact Rob at programs@darlingtonarts.org to register or schedule a private tour!

Because we are a member-supported center for the arts, a non-refundable Family Membership of $75, valid from September 1 through August 31, is required to enroll in all activities. The Family Membership may be tax-deductible and allows Darlington to maintain facilities, provide excellent administration, care for our instruments and studios, and fulfill our mission to provide Every Art for Everyone.

The health of our students and staff at Darlington are of utmost importance. Please click on the link to learn more about our policies set in place to ensure proper safety and social distancing protocols onsite.
