Preschool of the Arts (PSA) is an educational child care facility with three locations - two in Tolland and one in Ellington,CT. PSA serves children ages 6 weeks through 12 years in a comprehensive child care setting. It is fully licensed by the State of Connecticut.
At all schools, children are bused to and from all public schools in the town at no extra charge to the parents. We pride ourselves in serving families in the surrounding communities by providing quality child care while delivering a rich curriculum for all children with emphasis on the arts.
The children in our schools are happy to be there and are always discovering new things about the world around them. They have music every day, frequently with a music specialist. Art projects are done several times during the day. Movement is taught weekly by a dance teacher who specializes in early childhood movement as a precursor to dance. Spanish is also taught weekly by a Spanish speaking teacher. All subjects are taught - literature, language arts, math, science (often called discovery at the early childhood level) using the arts as a vehicle to present these important subjects.
We present "Family Nights" around certain themes several times a year. There is a literacy night where parents are able to hear from experts in the field of early literacy about methods they can use to increase their children's interest and skill in pre-reading. Later in the school year, we have a Family Music Night where families join together to make music and participate in movement activities. We also have an Family Art Night where families are able to create their own work of art with their child.
