Science: We learn science through doing. Based on students’ interests, we set up observation stations, sensory stations, weather demos, and experiments. For example, we learn about chemistry while cooking, biology by observing animals and insects, and human aging through interactions with our grand friends.
Technology: Using age-appropriate tools, students learn about lasers during spy week and design by building leprechaun traps around Saint Patrick’s Day. They play with state-of-the-art puzzles, toys, and interact regularly with our up-to-date and modern equipment. They even get to see real fire trucks and learn how they work.
Engineering: Students learn engineering by developing obstacle courses, performing sink/float experiments, engaging in building projects, discovering how things work, and fixing broken materials and toys.
Arts: We offer open-ended graphic art projects and child-selected art media, and we display the completed projects for other students and parents to view. We also incorporate singing, dancing and yoga into our curriculum. Storytelling is another important element of our arts program, and includes extending, retelling, and acting out stories.
Math: Students have multiple opportunities to learn math skills. We measure while cooking, count objects, and learn the days of the week. In addition, sorting and pattern recognition activities help develop a foundation for learning math in elementary school.
