Engaging with art is essential for the development and growth of children. Studies have shown that children communicate through artistic expression. The arts improve children’s motor skills, language development, and social skills, promoting self-discipline and expression.
Our arts enrichment programs encourage Los Niños Primero students to participate year-round in the joys of art, music, theatre, and dance. Our children explore and discover through the arts while embracing their culture and traditions!

Chorus and musical studies enrich our programmatic offerings while promoting unmitigated joy! Through music, children improve their ability to organize their thoughts, manage time and attention, and regulate their behavior.
The Los Niños Primero Orchestra is led by classical instructor Isabel Mester, and students familiarize themselves with ukuleles, xylophones, keyboards, and recorders. Through this meaningful and fun experience, children develop a passion for the arts and find themselves challenged to work as a team to create something beautiful. The purpose is to promote belonging and create self-rewarding, fun, and exciting musical activities and experiences that will nurture and assist Latino children as they expand their horizons!
As a complementary learning experience, Los Niños Primero partners with the Alliance Theatre. Through storytelling workshops, performances, art, and music-making, the Alliance Theatre community shares its strengths with Los Niños Primero while helping our students improve literacy skills and reading comprehension readiness.
The Alliance Theatre is a signature collaborator in our Early Educational Programs and we wholeheartedly thank them for lovingly engaging our students in the theater arts.

Students are partnered with their “Big” and participate in free workshops, field trips, and activities that will cultivate a close relationship built on trust and personal growth.
