We strive to provide the most beneficial learning environment by leveraging cutting edge technology and traditional methods of education. There are many facets to our enrichment programs that combine to make the Audubon School the premier educational learning academy in the Pine Bluff area, and here are just a few.

  • All children ages three and up have access to Spanish instruction. The 3 & 4 year old classes will participate in a weekly introduction to Spanish with fun games, songs, and activities.

  • Children ages 18 months and older are able to participate in our unique Art Program.

    • Our visual arts program focuses on teaching the production of art, the appreciation of art in our history and culture, the critical assessment of art, and the connections between the various disciplines. 

  • We offer weekly music lessons, and bi-weekly movement classes.

  • We provide access to other important enrichment activities such as seasonal gardening instruction.

  • We provide healthy meals and nutritious snacks. 

  • The Audubon School seeks to be very involved in the community and foster the spirit of volunteerism in our children with many fundraising events.

  • The Audubon School is not just about watching over children while parents are working. The educational development of our students is the highest priority, and the program was built around this goal.

  • We use research-based curriculums that aim to take advantage of the essential window of opportunity in early childhood development (the first four years of a child's life) when each sensory experience--what a child sees, hears, touches, tastes, and smells--creates connections (synapses) between brain cells. Repeated experiences solidify these connections and promote understanding.

  • We are independently owned and are able to attract and retain the most qualified and caring instructors by offering a higher salary.

Our Vision

It is was our vision to develop an early childhood educational facility that will change the landscape of the city producing young students who enter kindergarten with an educational jump start and a thirst to learn more.


These are the children who will have the confidence embedded within themselves by a good educational foundation to achieve their goals and become incumbent pillars of our community.
