Community Arts Preschool at Civic Park is a multi-age, hands-on, play-based program using developmentally appropriate practices to encourage and respect students’ interests that uses individual learning styles. Through an integrated curriculum, each child will grow in all learning domains: language and literacy skills, mathematics and science, social studies, social and emotional development and the visual arts. Located in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek, our preschool at Civic Park embraces its urban environment as part of the curriculum.
Community Arts Preschool at Civic Park offers two Mixed Age programs and operates four days a week throughout the year. All classes are half-day (3 hours), morning or afternoon.
Multi-Age Classes (36 – 57 months)
Our Multi-Age classes offer numerous activities to enhance your child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Starting at 36 months, children entering our Multi-Age classes are immersed in collaborative play and learning as they continue to develop and deepen their language skills. Children interact with their peers, creating connections and fostering their social/emotional development. Experiences with science, social studies, and early math, reading, and writing skills are introduced alongside their emerging ideas and interests and are further deepened in small group learning stations.
