The earliest years are the wonder years. A time when children are curious by nature and undeterred by the unknown. That’s why an EarlystART education is distinctively different. Here, we believe that art creates equality.
For 50+ years, we’ve inspired the minds of little learners – first as United Inner City Services (UICS) – and now as EarlystART, Kansas City’s leader in early childhood education.
