Perform to Learn hires qualified teachers in academics and performing arts to team teach. We cross-train and collaborate to meet the consistent daily expectation of our students and families. We recruit to establish a culturally, gender and generationally diverse staff. We seek recent early elementary education graduates, seasoned teachers, retirees and contract professionals to execute the program. Just as we promote growth and independence in our curriculum, we encourage the same approach from our staff. With dynamic educational creative collaboration, we build teams that are committed to the student’s preschool experience and individual development – personal growth, independence and elementary readiness.

The selection of images above are from previous performances. Each school year closes with a sold-out “show of shows”! The focus on movement and mastery demonstrates the students’ progress through a series of beloved and well-rehearsed performances. Each year parents are speechless as they watch their children up on a professional theater stage performing in a truly entertaining and dynamically staged production. Our staff’s love of performing arts and love of the children in their care is the signature of this event.
