The mission of The Music Settlement's center for early childhood is to provide high quality early childhood experiences for children ages 3 month to 6 years of age. Educational programs at university circle and Ohio city locations offer state accredited and 5-star quality rated preschool, day School, and kindergarten courses to children 3-6 years. These programs nurture The individual, support The family and enhance a child's social, emotional and academic development through involvement with creative arts. This has been an important part of The Music Settlement for over 65 years and we have earned a reputation for excellence in all aspects of early childhood education. Arts for The young programs provide creative and innovative Music classes for adult and child, ages 3 month- 6 years, to begin exploring Music together.
The Music Settlement's center for Music provides Music instruction, classes, and ensembles to students of all ages from around The greater Cleveland area. In keeping with our mission, students of all circumstances are admitted without audition, and The center awards financial aid and scholarships to ensure that ability to pay is not a barrier to musical study. The center for Music has several outreach partners for off-site Music instruction. Nationally, we have collaborated with The berklee college of Music as part of their city Music network. The Music Settlement students, enrolled in The jazz at The Music Settlement (jams) program, vie to become annual recipients of a full scholarship to berklee's 5 week summer performance program.
