At Children’s Discovery Center, we believe that it is never too early to begin integrating science, technology, engineering, arts and math (S.T.E.A.M.) into early childhood education. That is why we have enhanced our Reggio Emilia educational model by expanding children’s learning opportunities across these content areas. Our teachers encourage children in science exploration to engage, explain and evaluate. Laying the foundation for these skills helps children become successful as they enter kindergarten and first grade.
Several of our educators have already received training in this approach, and our goal is to establish mentor classrooms where new teachers will be trained to integrate these important components into their teachings.
We know you will enjoy seeing your children’s natural responses to these S.T.E.A.M. concepts and watching their knowledge increase as they prepare for tomorrow’s world.
