BAAY Preschool believes that merging academics with the arts is essential in order to serve the whole child. 

We offer a unique early learning opportunity to develop cognitive, emotional, social, and multi-sensory skills in an environment rich in the arts.

Our learner-centered, arts-infused curriculum draws from the Reggio Emilia philosophy, where teachers often work on projects with small groups of children, while the rest of the class engages in a wide variety of self-selected activities typical of preschool classrooms.

Our programs are designed especially for children ages 2.5 to 5 years old who are developmentally ready for social learning experiences outside the home.

We at BAAY Preschool believe...

Children who are involved in the arts:

  • imagine, create, and express
  • develop self-confidence and self-discipline
  • think critically, solve problems, and make informed judgements
  • work cooperatively in groups
  • appreciate others' points of view
  • are open to new pathways for learning all subjects
  • interpret and reflect life
