STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based education teaches children crucial skills including problem solving, teamwork, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, decision making and leadership.
The importance of play is central to The Preschool’s philosophy, and all students are provided time for student-led play each school day. We have identified a need for an additional space for gross motor play that can be used year round.
Research shows that early exposure to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is a predictor of later school success. Unlike rote learning, the active learning of a STEM curriculum helps children develop critical thinking skills such as reasoning, predicting, and problem solving. The Preschool is on the leading edge of Buckhead preschools offering a STEM curriculum and is the first to have a STEM Lab and Play Space of this kind.
