ART PLAY is located at 524 Allen Ave., Portland in the Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church.
We offer the following programs:

THREE-YEAR-OLD PROGRAM – meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30 – 11:30am.

FOUR-YEAR-OLD PROGRAM – meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:30-12:00pm and children bring their lunch.

ART PLAY offers an enriching program for preschool children. Our program includes extensive open ended art experiences, block play, dramatic play opportunities, and small and large motor activities. We feel that each child is unique and develops his/her abilities when he/she feels comfortable in the environment. It is very important for children to have opportunities to choose their activities at school and socialize with the other children. It is also important for children to participate in structured activities that are developmentally appropriate.We feel that a positive preschool experience clearly impacts a child’s adaptation to later school experiences. ART PLAY provides a positive, supportive environment that is conducive to a child’s emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development.
