TerraNichol Academy of The Arts School is the kind of school parents expect, educators celebrate and children adore. Our approach to learning celebrates the great potential of young children, with the goal of nurturing self-motivated, life-long learners. The learning labs are guided by our Master Teachers as well as the Founder of TerraNichol Academy of The Arts Preschool with low teacher-to-child ratio to allow for one-on-one engagement and thoughtful observation. Join our small community school for a backstage tour and be inspired by our thoughtful team of Early Childhood Educators here at TerraNichol Academy.
Come and Explore our Reggio Emilia program at TerraNichol Academy acclaimed for the stunning environments, their educators who create, provoke and dazzle the students senses, invite curiosity and discovery, and most importantly, foster strong, respectful meaningful relationships.
Come learn about the values for children in the program:
being a home away from home
connecting children to their families
helping children to be powerful and active
being a steward of the natural world
seeing oneself as a capable learner
recognizing and being curious about our environment
We provide a school environment that is beautiful and taken care of with an attitude of care so that parents, children, and teachers want to come to school everyday.
It is with intelligent heart and courage that we continue our goals and vision to continue to proceed with the work of a child.

Learning Labs and Curriculum
At TerraNichol we work as a teaching team to enhance the children’s learning experience. Both children and staff float from learning environment to learning environment creating a family of learning. We feel that exposing students to different teaching methods, personalities, activities, and settings builds stronger social skills, coping skills, and better prepares students for other learning environments.
At TerraNichol we use an eclectic fusion of curriculums that are research based and proven successful for early childhood and primary programs. We incorporate the creative curriculum, Reggio Emilia approach, theories of Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence, and custom TerraNichol Curriculum. We thrive on incorporating the visual, and performing arts to help students excel in all domains.
The Reggio Emilia approach began in Reggio Emilia Italy and is still a driving force to many of their schools today. We have incorporated it here at TerraNichol because it focuses on the whole child, building a well-rounded academic program. The Reggio Approach focuses on student’s interest encouraging exploration and incorporating skills across the curriculum. The Reggio Emilia Approach was hailed as "the best education in the world for early learners" by Newsweek Magazine in 1991, and Harvard has also used the Reggio Approach in their Graduate School of Education for the last 23 years.
Our Enrichment classes are a great way to teach students skills on a diverse level. Students engage in Spanish, yoga & tea time, Zumba, music and art appreciation, culinary arts, eco-village, creative movement, gardening and gymnastics daily. Enrichment classes are a beneficial way to meet all types of learning styles and incorporate cross curriculum skills.

Inspiring students to be excited to learn and explore is the main component of our developed curriculum and approach. Creating a community of life long learners is not only essential for individual success but also for the success of our world. We, as early educators, are molding future presidents, educators, artists, and doctors to name a few. We strongly believe that the desire to learn and grow should not stop when we are grown but we should continue to challenge and better ourselves throughout life. Creating an environment where education is viewed as an exciting component of daily life will instill pride within each child molding a life long learner. Students are encouraged to ask questions, observe, explore, and analyze through exciting, age appropriate and hands on activities.
