I am Adriana Jones- Director and co-owner of Delmar Arts Academy. For the past 28 years, I have been committed to my career as an early childhood educator. This commitment has granted me what I consider to be a profound knowledge of the child’s inner workings. By fostering a balance between their cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual selves, we here at Delmar seek not only to ensure the happiest and healthiest start to our young students’ academic careers, but also to their life-paths as human beings.
We know that when parents and educators team-up, children reap the benefits. It is therefore by forging an alliance with our children’s’ parents and families, that we obtain an optimal, synergistic outcome for our children.
Seven years ago when we first opened our doors, we knew that the arts would provide an ideal context for our unique brand of early education. Thanks also to the implementation of the High-Scope curriculum, we have established a track-record of children who go on to be high achievers in both public and private grade schools.
Our after school program has quickly become one of East Ft. Lauderdale’s favorites: as is the case with our preschoolers, our after schoolers bring an electric energy to Delmar, and their parents are always sharing how happy they are with our afternoon Spanish, yoga, dance, music and art classes.
Finally, our Kindergarten, which was inaugurated in the 2014-2015 school year, is a jewel of a program in which children (ages 4+) and families enjoy extraordinarily small class sizes, a cutting edge High-Scope curriculum setting, and a primary education that reaches and surpasses common core standards.
In closing, I thank you for wanting to know more about Delmar Arts Academy and would like to invite you to come and take a tour of our beautiful, sprawling campus at 1400 N. Federal Highway, on the campus of the Sanctuary Church.
