About Arbor Arts 

Research Based Age Appropriate Curriculum 

Arbor Arts Early Childhood Educational Solutions was established to meet a need for research based age appropriate curriculum and services to professionals and families working with young children. Through research and observation, we have discovered what makes children tick. We must continue to ask hard questions to keep up with changing environments, family strictures, social norms, expectations and resources of young learners. Our curriculum is ever evolving to to create educational solutions that are relevant, interesting, exciting, and allows room for children's interests, choices, autonomy and independence while creating an environment that teaches beyond academic readiness. We are constantly looking to discover an “AHA” moment in a child that can be built upon to create the love of learning.

PLAY should be the focus of the DAY!

Creative play, imaginative play, outside play and meaningful play are integral to a child’s development, life skills and academic success.

Arbor Arts Early Childhood Educational Solutions provides structure to guide teachers and parents to create a meaningful play environment. Meaning play provokes, entices and encourages children to explore their world around them. Meaningful play is the basis for exploration which leads to discovery and discovery leads to knowledge.
