STEM Education in the Early Childhood Classroom
The world is becoming increasingly complex. We must have basic competencies in science, math, and technology in order to make sense of and process information. In Early Childhood Classrooms, typically, activities planned with a STEM focus (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) involve at least two of the four disciplines. Bright Horizons embraces STEM Education in Preschool and Kindergarten Prep.
is a way of thinking. Discussing how to examine and experiment is only the beginning!
includes any tool that helps make a task easier, goes far beyond computers and promotes critical thinking.
is about problem solving with innovation and construction! The goal of engineering is to develop tools (technology) that help us every day.
MATHEMATICS is at the heart of science, technology and engineering. A young child beginning to explore math concepts will focus on sequencing (1,2,3), patterns (1,2,1,2), sorting, and discovering shapes, volume, and size.
