For over three decades, visionary Dr. Tayo Reed, Community Faith Based, Educational and Performing Arts Youth Program Developer has worked with thousands of children to cultivate their natural abilities. The non traditional Preschool integrated with Arts and Academics compete in competitions to demonstrate and show, the level, the styles, and the diverse technical dance taught is on a competitive level verses recreational, creative moment in the classroom, and the basic baby ballet and tap classes. The trailblazing and rising fine arts preschool has proven toddlers and prek should not be limited by milestones or separated from older children who contribute to the development and growth rapidly. The unique childcare academy, Tayo Reed’s Performing Arts "Preschool" specializes in the performing arts under the umbrella of Tayo Reed’s “Performing Arts Center.” The concept is the first of its kind in America. The Early Learning Childcare Provider, Tayo Reed’s Performing Arts Preschool is set apart from your traditional childcare services by having a foundation of 30 years in entertainment and the performing arts. Being able to provide childcare as a licensed provider separates Tayo Reed’s Performing Arts “Center” from other Performing Arts Centers and dance schools. The secret to the preschoolers success in dance competitions and becoming brilliant scholars is the advanced exclusive teaching methods called, “Tayoartology" developed in 1988 when the Director and Founder, Dr. Tayo Reed graduated from Avondale High School, Dekalb Center of Performing Arts, in Avondale Estates, Georgia. The advanced curriculum contributes to the preschool brain learning faster than the average preschooler. The milestones for preschoolers in America is much lower and far behind compared to other countries. According to the Center for American Progress, the United States is far behind other countries on Pre-K, reported by Juliana Herman is a Policy Analyst with the Education Policy team at the Center for American Progress, Sasha Post is Special Advisor to CAP President and CEO Neera Tanden, and Scott O’Halloran, an intern with the Education team at the Center. Last year, on April 18, 2018, W. Steven Barnett, a Board of Governors professor, founder and senior co-director of the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University, Mark K. Shriver, CEO of Save the Children Action Network and senior vice president of US programs and advocacy at Save the Children wrote on CNN "When it comes to early childhood education, the United States needs to step up." Dr. Tayo Reed, has the solution that will improve the learning of all preschoolers across America especially in low income families in Union City, Georgia and other states. The answer is to eliminate learning through play completely and the inability to teach academics and reading proficiently starting in all preschools, increase the mile stones which are below average, and change keeping the toddlers separate from preschoolers. When toddlers are combined with preschoolers its been proven they will learn and maintain knowledge. The All-In-One Parent Resource at Tayo Reed’s Performing Arts Center and Preschool Academy of Arts gives students the opportunities to soar beyond the walls of a preschool and youth programs confined to a public school building. Teachers, Staff, and Parents are looking forward to the upcoming competitions in May 2019. Tayo Reed’s Performing Arts Center and the Preschool Academy of Arts has made an impact in the areas of dance, music, voice, drama, summer camp, after school enrichment, childcare services and recitals. The year 2019 is the breakthrough year of the innovative performing arts center since 2011 - 2012 winning 1st place in Modern, Lyrical, Hip hop, and Contemporary Dance with our advanced teen dance company from Tayo Reed’s Performing Arts Center in the Bravo and Showstoppers Dance Competitions.
