The Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth Preschool believes that merging academics with the arts is essential to serve the whole child.

Our play based, arts-infused, learner centered curriculum in our rich classroom environment draws from a balance of early learning philosophies. Our environment is filled with color, texture, sound, light, and warmth.

The BAAY Preschool offers children unique early learning opportunities to develop cognitive, social, emotional, and multi-sensory skills in an environment immersed in visual arts, music, theater arts, story-telling, dance, and movement.

Our daily rhythm includes art experiences, free play in a variety of interest centers, circle time, and gross motor activities in the theater!

Seasonal activities and local field trips are also important aspects of our preschool program.

Our teachers are highly trained, experienced, and dedicated early childhood educators who prepare and facilitate dynamic, developmentally appropriate learning experiences for students.
