Teaching preschoolers to love STEAM
However, our independent preschools are back to serving 300 families at 3 locations, providing in-person classes for trainees ages 2 to 5. Moms and dads are trusting us with their children not simply because of the safety preventative measures were taking, but since of our pedagogical method, which starts with a spirit of query and ends with trainees who have a long-lasting love of science.
In the spring and summertime of 2020, Brooklyn Preschool of Science shut down for six months due to COVID-19. During those same six months, practically 300,000 individuals left New york city, so there are definitely fewer households in our zip code than there remained in March.
An inquiry-based, hands-on approach
Through Carmelos experience as a public school teacher for 20 years and our time at BPOS, weve seen that a hands-on method is especially well suited to science because it puts principles in context. Students truly discover a lot more when theyre able to get their hands unclean and touch whatever.
Our schools are rooted in questions, in a sense of discovery. Our company believe that absolutely nothing must be taught separately. Checking out, composing, mathematics, art, movement– whatever ought to be taught holistically. Were also huge followers in hands-on knowing: we have about 25 various animals in each building to assist us teach life science.
Starting them young
The reason that we saturate the school with a lot of animals is that you cant get somebody to like, say, geckos if theyre 11 or 12 if they didnt have those early experiences when they were 5 or 6. The exact same is true of teaching abilities like robotics, coding, and computational knowing. It needs to take place early. These are the years to develop an enthusiasm for science, which likewise causes foundational language acquisition at a young age.
