Music and Art

Art and Music are enjoyed throughout the school day at Gilbert Preschool!

ART

Experiencing creative arts is important for preschoolers! Through art they develop in areas such as:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Language skills
  • Inventiveness
  • And many more areas

This website  from PBS describes many of the benefits, besides IT’S FUN!

Our preschoolers have art projects available to them everyday.  The art center is always ready during center time so that the kids can make their own free art creations or there may be a specific project for them to work on.

MUSIC

Music is the perfect outlet for children to develop self-confidence, express themselves creatively and encourage exploration of the world around them.

Children at Gilbert Preschool love singing and using instruments with their classmates.  Music is enjoyed throughout the day by singing to traditional children’s songs, singing during transitions and for prayer.
