Check out how Bright Horizons at Columbus Circle is implementing STEM in the classrooms!
STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM Education, a term initiated by the National Science Foundation, refers to an educational approach which integrates more than one of these disciplines. Science, technology, engineering, and math may seem like lofty subject matter for preschool children. In reality, preschoolers spontaneously engage in STEM activities indoors and out on a regular basis. With a little guidance from supportive Bright Horizons teachers, children's opportunities to engage in STEM learning are enhanced and opportunities to develop their critical thinking skills are engaged.
