Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is an essential part of children’s learning as it becomes a foundation for what academic path they may want to take in the future. Early exposure to the STEM learning gives them an advantage to delve into the different concepts that come with it, develop a passion for it, increase their knowledge, and hone their skills.
Infants and Toddlers
They are exposed to STEM through natural interactions with age-appropriate tools laid out for them in their classroom and in a safe outdoor environment. With building blocks, children are encouraged to build familiar structures and incorporate their math and engineering skills. Kids will also utilize simple scientific tools such as magnifying glasses and microscopes. We take advantage of outdoor learning as a way for them to examine and explore with the natural environment.
We implement hands-on activities to improve scientific thinking, reasoning, analysis, and creativity. We focus on motivating children to create their own hypothesis, improve their problem-soling skills, and increase their vocabulary. We stimulate their inquisitive nature and allow them to play, discover, and explore their natural environment.
