"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela

Our teachers provide meaningful experiences for the children as a basis for developing skills and concepts, using the HighScope curriculum. The emerging ideas and interests of the children play a vital role in teacher planning. We are dedicated to nurturing the creativity, curiosity, and uniqeness of every child. Building the child's self-esteem and confidence through positive feedback and reinforcement is a priority at 1st Fine Arts Preschool.


Each day a different key experience is offered to all of our students at no additional cost. This saves parents from spending their evenings and family time driving the kids to all of their extra curricular activities. These include piano lessons, gymnastics, dance, martial arts, STEM, and creative arts. We also work with the children on basic skills such as letter/number recognition, reading, fine/gross motor skills, and social skills.

We are in the Ypsilanti school district. Contact the bus garage for bus service to and from the center. We also transport from East Arbor Academy and South Arbor Academy for after school care.

Full day care is available for half days or days when school is not in session.

Students enjoy art, music, games, baseball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, and homework help.

A small snack is provdided after school or children are welcomed to bring one in.

During the summer monts we operate a SUMMER DAY CAMP with fun and educational activites and field trips.
