I am Adriana Jones- Director and co-owner of Delmar Arts Academy. For more than 30 years, I have been committed to my career as an early childhood educator. This commitment has granted me what I feel is a profound knowledge of the child’s inner workings. By fostering a balance between their cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual bodies, 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 prosper. By forging an alliance with our children’s parents and families, we obtain an optimal, synergistic outcome for our little ones.
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 afterschool program has quickly become one of East Ft. Lauderdale’s favorites. Our afterschoolers bring a fun and 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 growing elementary school, which currently includes Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade, is a jewel of a program in which children ages four to seven enjoy extraordinarily small class sizes, the cutting edge High-Scope curriculum, and a primary education that exceeds state and national 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 facility at 1400 N. Federal Highway, on the campus of the Sanctuary Church.
