Pre-K and kinder STEAM Programming

Every First Wednesday and Last Saturday

Upcoming Schedule

Little learners get a head full of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) with these interdisciplinary and hands-on activities. Designed for curious preschoolers, these playful activities focus on themed materials and then expand outward with storytelling, project-based learning, science, discovery, artifact viewing and classroom exploration.

Little Innovators Curriculum

Literacy

Early literacy development begins in the first three years of a child’s life and supports their future language development, reading, writing, and overall learning. Through Little Innovators we seek to inspire confidence in young learners to expand their minds through storytelling and exploration.

Math/Science

Math at the early childhood level can be as simple as describing spatial relationships, up, down, on, under, behind. Science can be as basic as sensory experience of the environment. When very young children participate in these activities, it opens neural pathways that help them to understand the math and science principles they will be taught when they are older in school.

Art

In young children, artistic activities lead to the formation of well-rounded personalities, good attachment, self-esteem and better mental health. Art employs any or all of the senses, such as sight, sound, taste and smell. As they experience situations that immerse their senses they are further encouraged to explore their own creativity.

Problem Solving

Developing problem-solving skills is important to not only young learners academic successes but also encourages their self confidence. Through story telling and STEAM based activities we can encourage young learners to grow up to be independent, successful, and productive. We want them to be inventors, innovators, and creators.
