Science is all exciting and hands on! We have a strong focus on science in all classrooms and each is set up with a Science/Discovery Center. Young children are naturally curious and desire to question, explore and investigate. This inherent sense of inquiry provides the foundation for science with young children as we foster their scientific knowledge by providing rich environments both indoors and out. Our Science Centers have a variety of age-appropriate materials such as magnifiers, balance scales, prisms, plants, different sensory experiences and books as well as manipulatives and materials which are seasonal. We welcome children and parents to bring in items from home or found outside to share in our Science Centers to provide the most variety of experiences possible. We also incorporate nonfiction reading and exposure to science related vocabulary.
