Our Kindergarten provides a unique balance of academics and performing art disciplines creating an ideal learning environment for your child.

Kindergarten Class in Frisco:

The Musical Arts Schoolhouse is Frisco’s unique premier performing arts Kindergarten! We focus on the development of the whole child and meeting each child’s individual needs.

What this means for your child is that the curriculum will be based on their strengths and challenges not the class as a whole. Your child will be learning from a customized workbook based curriculum combining two core educational programs.

Your child will experience a learning environment that is structured but fun through traditional Kindergarten academics such as reading, writing, hands on science, history, mathematics and no-bake cooking.

Students have an amazing opportunity to experience their Kindergarten education in addition to lessons in Music with instruments (including piano), Theatre, Dance, Spanish and Art.

There is a state of the art computer lab with iPads right in the classroom! This will allow students to explore the world of computers through the wide variety of academic applications offered from the iPad.

All of our teachers are professionals in their field. Our teachers hold a degree in education or their area of artistic discipline.

Teachers also make a one year commitment to our students allowing more consistent expectations and overall learning environment.

Students will be engaged in small group ratios of 1:7 allowing more one on one instruction. In order to incorporate a stronger academic schedule, our Kindergarten students rotate 2 hours per day to the “performing art specials” and have a block schedule for academics.

Students bring their lunch and share mealtime together as a team, and parents can be sure of what their child is eating since they choose it from home. Peanut Free.

The full-day schedule offers children a lunch period, quiet reading time, academic games, homework round table and one-on-one tutoring as needed.

These are just a few of the incredible advantages students will have while attending the Musical Arts Schoolhouse all inclusive Private Kindergarten. It is our intent and desire to make sure that we provide students a strong foundation intellectually, socially and emotionally by combining academics through the arts.

A Typical Day at the Musical Arts Schoolhouse:

Students arrive in their kindergarten home room and rotate daily through the following disciplines during the weekly schedule:

Kindergarten: Our unique challenging academic curriculum is developmentally appropriate. We create a fun learning environment by combining mathematics, science with hands on experiments, reading, history, and handwriting with fun games and no-bake cooking!

Music: A combination of instruments (including piano), composer history, creative movement, and songs.

Theatre: Building confidence and imagination with puppetry, poetry, dress up, terminology, public speaking on a friendly stage, and every child gets a part with our age appropriate skits.

Dance: A unisex program incorporating the techniques of Jazz, tap, hip hop and ballet.

Art: Our advanced art program allows students to learn about famous artists such as Picasso and Jackson Pollack with the use of a wide variety of art mediums beyond tempera paint and crayons. Some of these include sculptures, Mosaics, acrylic paint on canvas, and paper mâchè. Students also learn about art terminology, 2D/3D art, color mixing and so much more!

Spanish: Students learn the basics of this foreign language through a combination structured academics, activities and fun games weekly.

Computer Technology: Students enjoy a variety of fun educational software including virtual cooking and virtual dress up weekly.

Our students showcase their knowledge of the arts through four major events a year. Our music concerts, art galleries, theatre skits, and dance performances with professional costumes allow families to see what their children are learning at the Musical Arts Schoolhouse!

The Musical Arts Schoolhouse is located at the Frisco School of Music and Perfoming Arts, a premier private music and arts school in the area, at Preston and Main Street in Frisco.

Lead Academic & Kindergarten Teacher

My name is Ms Vicki. I was born and raised on a little farm in MO. After high school, I attended Southwest Baptist University where I majored in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Art Appreciation.

I have been living in Texas since 1994. I am married to a wonderful man. Scott and I are blessed to have five children. Three of them are now adults and exploring life on their own. Our two youngest, Tina and Scotty are both still in High School and keep me busy going to their school and social activities.

I have been teaching since 1989. I have taught pre-school, Kindergarten and K-4th Math and Reading Intervention at a public ISD.

My love and passion is working with children and helping them succeed in everything they do.

When I am not chauffeuring my own children around to all of their school/sport activities, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, drawing, cooking and going on long runs.

I love working with children and that’s why I am blessed to be part of the MAS team. My classroom is a set up as a creative, fun, positive and safe learning environment for the students. Each student will be working on a variety of different skills that will prepare them for the upcoming year.

I look forward to another wonderful year at Musical Arts Schoolhouse.
