Pre-Kindergarten 4 & 5 Year Olds
Jacqueline’s School of Ballet is excited to announce its newest division as we introduce JSB Performing Arts Preschool. We invite your pre-kindergarten 4, 5 and some mature 3 1/2 year old children (by Sept. 1st) to enroll in our day time preschool. With a 30 plus year tradition of exceptional ballet and dance training coupled with performance opportunities for children of all ages, we look forward to incorporate our experience and perspective into this new division.
Tami Ault: Principal Preschool Teacher
Ms. Tami’s greatest love is teaching. She has worked as a Kindergarten aide in Alpine School District and has spent the last 18 years teaching preschool, including experience teaching at Peppermint House Preschool under the direction of Andrea Johnson. She feels that one of the most powerful tools in teaching children is through rhythm, music and story. Her greatest satisfaction comes when a child gains the confidence to perform on stage and shine! She has been married for 30 years and is the proud mother of 6 children and 4 grandchildren.
We will have an open, fun, energetic and loving environment for our young students to move and groove. Our curriculum will consist of three areas of focus; Academics & Arts, Dance & Movement and Music & Drama. We will also have other fun additions to the school including semester performances, field trips and individual student shine time. Our students will spend time in both a studio setting and a bright classroom. We also have a small stage in our studio for creating and performing.

“I Have Been So Impressed With This Preschool!! Mrs Ault Is Amazing And By Far Exceeded My Expectations. She Is So Great With The Kids And Really Takes An Interest In Each One. It Has Been The Perfect Place For My Daughter! I Would Recommend It To All.”
MICHELLE HORNE RUSSELL
“This Program Is Incredible! Mrs. Ault Is A Wonderful Teacher, She Is Very Attentive To Each Child And Their Needs. I Am Thoroughly Impressed And Would Suggest This Preschool To All Of My Family And Friends!”
“What A Great Job JSB Preschool Did Getting Reese Ready For Kindergarten. I Help Out In Her Classroom Once A Week And I Help The Children Swap Out Their In-Class Reading Books. Most Of The Kids In Her Class Pull From The ‘AA’ Or ‘A’ Basket And Reese Is On Basket ‘C’ Which Means She Is On A 1st Grade Reading Level Right Now. Your Efforts Made Her Transition Into Every Day School Seamless As She Didn’t Have To Stress About Learning How To Write Her Name Or What Sound Every Letter Makes. There’s A Special Place In Heaven For Preschool Teachers And I Just Wanted To Say THANK YOU!!! We Love Mrs. Ault”
