To educate by cultivating the wonder of learning through meaningful partnerships
Beginning in September, our schoolwide focus will be on S.T.E.A.M. concepts in the Early Childhood Classroom.
We invite you to join us in partnership exploring S.T.E.A.M. and the wonder of learning through this lens.
What is S.T.E.A.M?
How can we promote these concepts?
Start with observation.....the play behaviors listed below occur naturally in children's play. As you begin to look for these concepts, you will see that children are naturally drawn to this type of play.

9 Key Engineering Play Behaviors in Early Childhood (these are non-sequential and overlapping)
We are a school for young children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Our approach is Reggio Emilia inspired. The following principles guide our approach and curriculum: The child is an active, strong, competent collaborator in the evolution of their learning. The teacher is a guide, rather than an instructor, who observes, questions, researches, documents, reflects, and interprets. The classroom is a teacher unto itself! The relationships that develop between the children, their families, and the teachers create opportunity for growth, reflection, and support. Long-term projects are at the core of our program, using the children’s interests, and the teacher’s observations, as the guide.
