Arts Infused, Academically Inspired! 

In our preschool, every day’s an academic and artistic journey.  Children discover the magical world of numbers, letters, books and storytelling.  They conduct science experiments, tune in to the weather and learn about animal habits and habitats. When they’re not digging into nature projects, they’re uncovering all the mysteries of their neighborhood and the big world beyond. And, to enhance these learning experiences, we weave music, dance and visual arts into the fabric of every day.  Children will learn about great artists and composers. They’ll also sing, dance, play instruments and create their own works of art.

Students in our M/W/F preschool classes receive Suzuki-inspired violin instruction as part of their preschool curriculum! Our program is modeled after the highly successful Talent Education Institute in Japan, founded by Shin'ichi Suzuki. The essence of this wonderful program is the belief that natural talent and ability can be fostered in any child through training and nurturing the natural growth process.

An arts-enriched environment fully engages children’s senses and intelligences and opens a clear path for all types of learners. Through artistic activities, children learn to think objectively and creatively.  They learn to listen, observe and describe; they learn to analyze, interpret and act independently.  Physically, they develop gross and fine motor skills and increase their flexibility, strength and balance. Socially, they learn to share, collaborate and express themselves with or without words.

Our highly skilled and experienced Preschool teachers are nurturing, accessible and responsive.  Children will not only experience the arts with these talented educators; they will also participate in programs with Conservatory faculty members from other disciplines on a regular basis.

After school, children can stay for one of our optional enrichment activities. Conservatory staff members transition the students to a fun and educational mix of music, art and dance classes. These classes change periodically and are offered at an additional charge.

Mrs. Anderson with StudentTestimonials!

"We absolutely love the Cape Conservatory preschool program. It has been an extremely welcoming environment for both children and parents. The level and quality of communication is wonderful but the most impressive part is the sense of community... As our youngest child begins her last month at the Conservatory Preschool, I couldn't feel more pleased in knowing that she is completely ready for kindergarten from the wonderful teachers and their expertise. It is with 100% certainty that I would recommend this program to all families!" -Michelle Melby

"My youngest child is finishing up his very successful kindergarten year and I have to give much credit to the foundation that the Conservatory preschool helped my family build. We have also made many lasting friendships with the other families that we met over the years."  -Cathy Castano 

"The Conservatory's Falmouth Preschool is exceptional with so much to offer, academically, artistically, musically and socially... (The teachers) are both nurturing, top-notch with a touch of class! I couldn't be more happy with the education, and growth my daughter received... As a musician myself, I believe that music and the arts are an important part of learning and individual growth... I encourage everyone to look into all aspects of the conservatory, whether it be for private lessons, art instruction, or the beautiful preschool in Falmouth." -Susannah Corrigan
