When you peek in behind the walls of St. Stephen’s large campus in the middle of Hollywood you will find a children’s wonderland. On any given day you will find kids painting, or playing music. Or maybe today they are dancing in the afternoon. Or maybe they’re tending their own plants in the garden. With so much laughter and fun, it’s easy to forget the proven and lasting impact that this early childhood learning will have on the kid’s lives. And that’s exactly the point. Children who attend Delaney Wright are eager to explore and learn. They are excited when they discover. And they begin to find their own voice.
Delaney Wright is proud to be one of the best preschools in Los Angeles and the only that focuses on learning through the arts. Our curriculum uses the arts to maximize each child’s development. We cover language arts, math, science, and social content through music, movement and dance, art, story-telling, dramatic play, and exploratory experiences.
At the center of all that we do are the needs and interests of the children we serve. We provide all of our children with a responsive, nurturing, and stimulating environment in which they can reach their full potential. We offer year-round enrollment because life is year-round (and the kids love it!). Our 1:5 student/teacher ratio is less than half of what the state mandates we must have (1:12). We offer half and full day schedules. And we offer extended care when needed.
We are also always looking for research-based, innovative ways to enhance our cutting edge, arts-based developmental curriculum. Which brings us to our community garden. Our garden offers a unique opportunity to learn about the earth and our stewardship and care of it. It’s hard to describe the expression on a face when they see “their” seedling begin to grow. And our secure and secluded outdoor area with equipment has space where kids can be, well, kids!
Maybe we’re a good fit for you. Give us a call or send us a NOTE and schedule your own tour to see.
It’ll make you want to be a kid again!
