Late Start Arts

Vashon Center for the Arts offers a Late Start Arts program to elementary age students each school year during the Vashon Island School District’s Professional Development Days (PDD) when school is not in session. Our Late Start Arts program provides an arts-oriented childcare resource to working families with children in grades K-5.

The 2022-23 School Year has announced Professional Development Days will occur every Friday with schools starting an hour and a half later than usual each week. VCA’s Late Start Arts program will increase as well to offer childcare and enriching arts experiences every Friday morning starting September 2.

In addition to our core administrative staff, five teaching art instructors will be on hand to offer a variety of courses, from ‘Story Play and Art’ for grades K-2, to Visual Arts and Dance Samplers for grades 3-5.

Registration will open on August 15.

Financial aid will be available for families in need.
