Preschool STARs:
(Creative Arts-Based Preschool Alternative Program)


Preschool STARs is TLB Music's creative arts-based preschool alternative program!

Our Preschool STARs program is designed for children 2 - 3 years old. This drop-off program is perfect for introducing separation and preparing children for half and full day programs. The class meets for 2 hours, twice a week. This is the ideal amount of time for children this age, allowing kids to get accustomed to school routine and independent learning! We believe that children learn best when they are having fun so we follow a play-based teaching philosophy that gently introduces a structured routine and helps instill a life-long love of learning. A low teacher-child ratio ensures individualized attention and support for each student!

Our winter/spring curriculum includes music, art, yoga, storytime, child-directed play and fun weekly themes like "transportation", "farm animals", "meet the orchestra", "the seasons" and "when I grow up".



What does the STAR in Preschool STARs stand for?

School Readiness: Our program is designed to prepare children for school readiness. We work on adjusting children to separation, helping them gain confidence on their own so they can transition seamlessly into longer programs! Our original curriculum prepares 2-year-olds for 3 and 4-year-old year old programs by fostering age-appropriate social, creative, intellectual, emotional and physical growth.
Teamwork: Children practice important classroom skills like sharing, taking turns, working together, resolving conflict and getting to know new classmates.
Arts: We hope to cultivate a love of the creative arts in all our students. Our curriculum includes an enriching art and music class every week.
Reading: Kids love working on pre-literacy skills with the letter of the day, word of the day and story of the day.

Our Mission:
Our mission is to provide a nurturing, developmentally-appropriate environment in which we can foster children's social, creative, intellectual, emotional and physical growth in preparation for school readiness. Our play-based teaching philosophy gently introduces a structured routine and helps instill a life-long love of learning.
