Kids Create is a class for children ages 3 1/2-5 and is ideal for a child’s first class away from home or as a supplement or substitute to traditional preschool programs. This class runs for the full school year two mornings a week for 2 1/2 hours.
Our instructors engage students through a variety of creative experiences including sculpture, painting, drawing, creative movement and music. This program provides social, motor, and creative experiences that excite love for learning through the arts.
Think of “the arts” as art, music, dance, and drama. Not only is art fun, art is the perfect way to learn. Learning through the arts is a smart and fun way to enhance brain development, support individual learning, and help children prepare for success in school and in life. Arts-based learning is great for kids of all ages, but especially beneficial for preschool age children.
You have meant so much to not only Addy this year, but also to my husband and me. We never once thought twice about leaving her in your capable hands. You have such an amazingly wonderful quality to work with children that so few have. We knew the moment we met you that there couldn’t possibly be anyone better to guide our baby girl in the first of many years to come of her educational life. We will always remember the amazing impact you have had on all of our lives. – The Miller Family
Love love Kids Create Preschool program at Jackson School of the Arts!!!Our son has had a wonderful experience, fully enjoys being there and loves his teachers and new friends. Miss Jode and Miss Brenda are phenomenal, caring and highly respect the young learner and toddler as an individual person …..as does Executive Director Kim Curtis and Assistant Director Amy Fracker. This loving and nurturing philosophy provides a unique culture and comfort for all the children. I am so thankful for their guidance and support this past year to help with Louis’ development – socially, emotionally and even soft academics through the wonderful world of art. Do consider this program for your little one or those you know. It will be a wonderful foundation.” – Susanne Graves
“The Kids Create program was the absolute best choice we could have made for our daughter’s pre-k experience. Having the opportunity to learn through music, art, and play in a small class setting is a gift that she’ll be able to take with her always. Miss Jode and Miss Brenda are absolutely amazing and loving teachers who have made such an impact on our daughter. She has a new confidence and love of learning that we see in her every day. Thank you Kids Create!” – The Miller Family
“Jode has brought a love of learning to my children that has blessed our family beyond measure. The foundation that she created set them up for huge success as they entered kindergarten and throughout their entire educational experience. They still have a love for learning and exploring that I believe was developed by the learning environment Miss Jode created.”
