How we engage children in the first years of their lives profoundly impacts future learning and success.

In partnership with Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, Arizona Wolf Trap uses arts integration to inspire children with a lifelong love of learning and of the performing arts. When you bring the arts into the classroom, you create joyful, active learning experiences that engage children in ways that can increase academic and emotional development.

Early Childhood Arts-Integrated Residencies

Arizona Wolf Trap inspires young learners through joyful, active learning experiences while providing arts-based professional development to early childhood educators and engaging parents, caregivers, and siblings.

Collaborating with early childhood educators, professional teaching artists are placed in classrooms for seven weeks (14 sessions). These sessions use music, movement, and creative drama, puppetry, and storytelling to help children with curriculum topics. Special attention is given to language development and pre-math and pre-reading skills.
