What are WPA Parents Saying?

"Our 2 boys have been attending WPA since they were both around 2, now with our oldest 5 and in the Pre-K class we’ve been a part of all 4 classrooms. We’ve loved our experience here! It’s a truly warm, welcoming and nurturing environment. Our boys LOVE it here and look forward to school days!

Being a smaller school the teachers know all the students/parents and we’ve also made friends among the parent community. They learn, play and are loved by this wonderful WPA family. We’re so happy we chose Wilmington Preschool of the Arts!" -Shandi McDonnell WPA Parent

Stretch-n-Grow®

2 1/2 to 5 Year Olds

This childhood physical education, nutrition, and wellness program improves the level of fitness in our stars and teaches them the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the perils of inactivity. Offered for ages 2 1/2 to 5 years old, this program develops good health and fitness habits in a fun and EXERciting way!

Music & Movement 

WPA's Music & Movement is a collaboration of songs, finger plays, and rhythmic instruments to inspire our children to get up and move. We have taken a wealth of information and put it together to give our children the best of what music has to offer.

The children are exposed to several props such as parachutes, drums, maracas, bells, rhythm sticks, scarves, etc. to enrich their Music & Movement activities.

Art and Creative Dance

Art is an integral part of every WPA classroom. Art experiences in our classrooms contribute to creative development as well as to a wide range of skills in other areas including perceptual, cognitive, language and social skills.

Our dance/creative movement class is designed to introduce children to the idea of expressing themselves through movement.  Fun activities, such as stretches, yoga, beginning ballet, free dance and beginning tumbling,  help them develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.

Lil' Hammers Soccer

The Little Hammerheads program is an outside program that comes to our school once a week to offer early soccer skills onsite to those who want to participate.  Lauren from the Hammerheads office brings balls and small goals and transforms half of the playground into a mini soccer field for an hour of fun soccer drills and scrimmages. 

Storytelling

Following the research of author and educator, Vivian Paley, our storytelling class encourages imagination,  language development, literacy and more. Each student is given the opportunity to "write" his/her own story. Then, as a class, the story is acted out as a play! Students love being able to engage in their fellow authors stories by making their characters come to life!
