From Darla, mother of Trevor:

“Trevor LOVES Asheville Arts Center preschool. When we looked at preschools, we wanted one that would help to develop his creativity, foster an outgoing personality, and instill a love of the arts that would follow him into adulthood. Asheville Arts Center fits the bill perfectly. Trevor not only interacts with his peers in a non-competitive, open and accepting environment, but is also exposed to a wide variety of art forms from singing and dancing to drawing, painting, and sculpture. We love that he goes twice a week to a place where people hang around merely for the love of performing and enjoying the performing arts. We want Trevor to grow into a well rounded man, equally comfortable with sports, business, and the art world, and the Asheville Arts Center preschool program is the perfect start along that path.”

From Shannon, mother of Lotus:
“I had been searching for a pre-school for my two year old, Lotus, for over 6 months. I was looking for a program that would emphasize learning and self expression before 3 years of age. I was no stranger to Asheville Arts Center and when I learned of the Creative Arts Preschool, I knew it would be the right fit. Here, she would enjoy music, singing, dancing and all the other wonderful aspects that the Asheville Arts Center has been recognized for. I scheduled a tour that day.

I knew from the moment we met Ms. Mandy that this was the school for us. She immediately connected with Lotus by giving her individual attention during our visit. She was the shining light that would comfort, teach and care for my child as I would. Ms. Karen was there to ease my mind as a mother. I had a hard time leaving my child but she reassured me that Lotus needed the social interaction as much as I needed the time to devote to my business and to myself. The center offers a safe environment and plenty of different settings for the children to play in. I also like that the younger children share a part of their day with the older children. The real testimony was when Lotus came home from our tour and already referred to it as “my school”.

We not only found a great program but a great community. One that is safe, inviting and always supportive. From that morning on, Ms. Mandy’s smile has never dimmed but only shines brighter. Lotus has tripled her vocabulary and comes home happy and content singing songs and sharing stories. It has been an experience that we’ve built on. She now enjoys Mommy and Me ballet and will continue with Kindermusik next session. I am so thankful for what the Creative Arts PreSchool has provided for our family. They have made our lives richer for it.”

From Sandy, mother of Iris:

“We love the Asheville Arts Center because you make learning fun. Iris seems more confident and balanced since attending the Arts Center. She wants to go to school on Saturdays!”

The Creative Arts Preschool program offers hands-on learning so that children can discover the wonderful world around them. Research studies show that exposing children to the Performing Arts helps improve critical thinking and develop self-confidence. Children naturally respond to music, dance, art and drama. At the Asheville Arts Center, our curriculum incorporates all of this, while allowing each child to excel in other areas as well, such as math, science and language.
