The way we engage children in the first years of their lives has a profound impact on future learning and success.

Decades of practice and research prove that integrating the arts into early learning experiences contributes to greater academic achievement and social/emotional development for our youngest learners.

As the Maryland regional affiliate of Wolf Trap, we expand access to the arts for Maryland’s youngest children during the critical early learning years.

Our Early Learning programs bring joyful, arts-based learning and hands-on creative exploration to your youngest learners, families, caregivers, and educators with evidence-based experiences and guidance from teaching artists!
