Young At Art Museum Preschool

Young At Art Museum Preschool is a preschool within a museum! Children learn and explore amongst safe, secure and nurturing educational classrooms within our WonderScapes and CultureScapes galleries. Small group and individual instruction is enhanced by museum exploration, library visits, art and music instruction, exhibitions of children’s artwork in a genuine art-gallery format, and outdoor exercise in PlayScapes. It is a one of the most unique preschool experiences in the state of Florida.

Our Programs

Our preschool program consists of two classrooms. We have a VPK class as well as a preschool classroom for ages 3 & 4. Both classrooms follow a curriculum that was designed specifically for our school. Each month our students learn about a different artist. While learning about that artist and their artistic style our students are enriched with print knowledge, phonics, mathematics, oral language and fine and gross motor development. Throughout the month, each of our students create museum quality artwork and collaborative pieces.

VPK Program
Ages 4-5 | 8:30-11:30am

Our VPK program is located in the heart of YAA's Wonderscapes exhibit. The VPK room is our largest room in our program and is taught by 2 co-teachers. This classroom follows an art based curriculum that has been approved by the Early Learning Coalition. While learning about artists and artistic styles our students are enriched with print knowledge, phonics, mathematics, and oral language. Students in this program will throw clay on a potter’s wheel, screen print t-shirts and paint on canvas all while they learn all of the standards to become Kindergarten ready.

Preschool Program
Ages 3-4 | 8:30-11:30am

Our Preschool Program is located in our Culturescapes exhibit. This program is designed for 3 & 4 year olds who are fully potty trained. This room has a smaller class size and is led by two co-teachers. While following an art based curriculum these students experience hands on learning and fine and gross motor development. Print knowledge and mathematics are combined with collaging, sculpting and acrylic painting which creates a truly unique learning experience.
