Direct Benefits of Attending Our Preschool Program

Researchers have found a strong correlation between childhood involvement in creative arts and measurable success later in life.

The New York Center for Arts Education lists these benefits:

  • think creatively
  • observe, describe, analyze, and interpret
  • express feelings
  • problem-solving skills, critical-thinking skills, and language skills
  • collaborate with other children and adults
  • learns to go beyond just learning a skill to expressing a personal voice

At Expression City, we provide a wide variety of creative arts classes that allow you to choose those that are a good fit for your child. We value the next generation and strive to instill qualities that will help your child grow and thrive mentally, physically, and emotionally.

FOR AGES 3-5 (Students must be 3 by September 1st)

Does your child love to play make-believe, tell stories, sing, and dance? Then they’ll love hopping on board Expression City’s Mini’s Express.

Every Monday and Wednesday from 9:00 -12:00 your child will go on an imaginary journey to a make-believe land in a safe and encouraging environment.

Watch your child flourish as they learn to go beyond learning skills to expressing a personal voice.

Each week, Mini’s Express students will take part in several unique classes—STORY THEATRE, MINI MUSICIANS, and CREATIVE MOVEMENT.

In STORY THEATRE, your child will combine the roles of storyteller and character to create their own dramatic interpretations of stories, myths, folktales, legends, and their own original stories. Students will learn creative thinking, improvisational skills, and collaboration.

In MINI MUSICIANS, your child will sing their way through class while being introduced to a variety of instruments and music styles. They’ll develop listening skills and learn music theory through fun and games.

In CREATIVE MOVEMENT, your child will develop large motor skills while learning the basics of dance and tumbling. Watch their self-confidence soar as they learn body awareness, practice following directions, and develop rhythm.

Mini’s Express offers special bonuses, such as fun sticker charts, activity sheets, certificates, and culminates each year in a performance for friends and family, where your child can proudly share the many things they have learned in Expression City’s Mini’s Express Program.
