OUR PROGRAMS, with parent or caregiver:
Music Adventures 5 months to 2+ years*
Singing, sounding, bouncing, dancing, musical play, over and over with lots of sillies.....you can almost see the synapses firing! With teacher as guide and adults as active participants, we create a richly creative environment that allows kids to absorb information and build new skills in their first social scene. 45 minutes
Arfie’s Art & Play 20 months to 3 years*
At this transitional stage, your child’s repertoire of milestones is expanding rapidly. As language emerges and physical skills develop, their play is infused with the innate curiosity, creativity and imagination that is the foundation of all learning. Music, book-time, an art project pulling concepts together, and free play, this class has it all for this age group, and is an excellent “prep” for pre-k. 1 hour
*Please Note: The age range for our classes is fluid, because children build skills at different paces and via different creative pathways. The overlap allows for your child to do the class that’s best for them; please talk to Nanette about a trial class to assess.
LOCATION: Aikido of South Brooklyn, 205 Columbia St. 11231 (at Sackett)

Thank You for your interest in our programs - we hope to see you!
From researchers to early childhood experts, the compelling news about our children’s earliest years is very simple: PLAY WORKS . . . and our kids don’t get enough!
Through a balance of guided and unstructured play activities, ArtsCetera offers parents a chance to slow down and engage in the transformative experience of their children’s earliest learning. From an infant’s delighted crowing in music class to a toddler’s first messy art extravaganza, immersing children in a fun, total arts experience is what we are all about.
ArtsCetera’s play-based approach means your children have a great time developing critical skills and learning how to learn. It is the focus on play, not maintaining a busy schedule, that experts say most helps children thrive creatively, intellectually and socially in ways that benefit them now and for a lifetime.
And, rather than just entertain young children, our programs are designed to stimulate and encourage curiosity, participation and discovery, respecting the learning styles of the very young, while providing a creative environment that also engages adults. Along with providing arts programming, our studio has grown to be a place for families to network, socialize and nurture friendships.
