    Exploration Kids! Enrichment Hallmarks of Service

    Creating the Leaders of tomorrow through Performance Arts Education

    At Exploration Kids! Enrichment, we believe that the performance arts are not merely a fun and recreational outlet for self expression. Performance arts are also a very important tool in the development and growth of children. At Exploration Kids! Enrichment we strive to make the performing arts accessible to all! Our goal is to teach children concepts and themes, creative problem solving skills, teamwork and leadership, and an increased sense of self-expression and confidence. We do this through our Exploration Kids! Curriculum along with our 5 Methods of Arts Exploration™. These methods have been designed to teach the whole child from preschool to elementary school to ensure our students’ continued success in school and in life.

    Performance Arts in Every School
    Exploration Kids! Enrichment’s ultimate goal is to collaborate with all early childhood education centers, schools, community and recreation centers. We look to train and educate childhood educators on the Exploration Kids! Curriculum principles and the 5 Methods of Performance Arts™ to ensure that performing arts can be used as a tool for teaching and educating more children.

    Every Child should have access to the Performing Arts!
    At Exploration Kids! Enrichment we believe that every child should be given an opportunity to experience the performance arts regardless of social status, gender, race, or ability! We make our classes available to everyone through financial aid services, scholarships and payment plans. In 2013 we started our Title 1 Schools initiative designed to raise money for Title 1 schools in Colorado that needed financial assistance in funding our programs.
