PAGE Program




The PAGE Program

A "play-school" experience that provides preschool readiness with an arts focus in the unique setting of Glen Echo Park.


Great for socializing, playing, and learning.



PAGE Program
Classes are parent/child or caregiver/child.
PAGE is for children ages 1-4.
At the start of the semester, we divide kids into "Koalas" and "Butterflies." Koalas are approximately ages 2-4, and Butterflies are approximately ages 1-2. We use these age parameters as a guideline, so the “younger” group and “older” group may vary slightly from session to session based on the ages of participating children. (Please email with any questions.)
Classes take place Monday - Friday.
Classes are offered on a single-day basis, so you can experience PAGE one day per week, or fill your week with PAGE every day -- or anywhere in between.
Classes are 2.5 hours (9:30am - 12pm), with a majority of the scheduled activity taking place from 10am - 11:30am. 
A typical morning includes: free play, tabletop activities, a PAGE arts-specialty focus, circle time, storytelling, songs, snack time, craft projects and more. At PAGE we provide an environment that fosters: Play. Arts. Grow. Educate. We are uniquely located in the heart of Glen Echo Park. 
Preschool Skills + Daily Arts Focus
Our PAGE arts-specialty focuses are taught by our partners, including Metropolitan Ballet Theatre & Academy, Glen Echo Park Aquarium, Faculty member Denise Dittmar and other arts presenters. 
Musical Movement: We move and groove while using fun musical themed instruments to help us out.
