As the world changes at a rapid pace, The Preschool's curriculum continuously evolves to prepare students for success in the 21st century. Our Pre-K STEM Innovation class expands on the traditional Pre-K curriculum and adopts the Project-Based Learning model. Pre-K STEM students engage in investigative classroom activities and problem-solving through the lenses of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Our cross-curricular STEM Program is fully integrated into classroom lessons and ensures that students learn traditional academics, along with design thinking, and a broad spectrum of digital and technological skills.
In practice, Project-Based Learning asks students to identify and explore real-world, worthwhile topics that require them to continually question, hypothesize, and analyze. For each project, students’ progress through three learning phases: planning, where teachers guide students to identify interests and questions worth answering; implementation, where children investigate and discover answers through meaningful hands-on experiences; and reflection, where learners conclude which concludes the projects with a culminating events or activities activity. By working to answer questions and solve the problems of their projects, students develop critical thinking, mathematical and analytical reasoning, collaborative abilities, and a deep appreciation for how science and engineering can change lives.
