Early Childhood at The Music Settlement provides a nurturing environment that encourages natural curiosity, collaboration, exploration and discovery for children ages three to six years. Our half-day Preschool, year-round Day School and full-day Kindergarten offerings provide diverse, multicultural experiences through music, stories, cooking, art, drama, science and many other sensory experiences.

The Music Settlement’s arts-infused curriculum fosters brain and social development, builds confidence, encourages creative expression, and promotes play. Early Childhood experiences enable children to grow to their maximum potential socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically.
