We welcome potty trained children (and children who are actively working on potty training) from age 2 to age 5.  Stages Academy is a year-round school that not only immerses your child in the performing and fine arts, it prepares them for Kindergarten and beyond by giving them a lifelong love of learning.

Stages Academy is an activity-based preschool program.  Although our children have lots of fun, they are engaged and interacting with different teachers all day long.  Whether it’s ballet with our Dance teacher, planting a garden or observing nature with our Science teacher or piano lessons with our Music teacher, your child is active and stimulated throughout the day.

A typical day for our preschoolers might look like this:

7:00 Dropped off by parents at school

**You may notice that we have potty breaks every 40 minutes or so throughout the day.  Although all students at Stages Academy need to be potty trained, any that haven’t quite mastered the potty when they start school will master it within weeks (or even days) as long as parents are consistent at home.  Also, the frequent bathroom trips help cut down on accidents and improves children’s confidence in feeling “potty trained”.
