S.T.E.A.M. (is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) gives a new name to what we at Holy Family Day Nursery School have been doing for many years… helping children to explore, observe, ask questions, predict, problem-solve, by integrating and applying their learning to real-life situations.
Young children are great explorers. They learn through play and using various materials made available to them in our well-equipped classrooms. Allowing the younger students to explore, create and problem-solve helps develop their thinking skills for future application. Part of that creativity is expressed through art.
The older students actively engage in cooperative group problem-solving through collaboration utilizing known and newly acquired means of communication.
Our goal is to promote academic growth and development of critical thinking and reasoning skills in the hopes they will lead our students toward future S.T.E.A.M. studies. Becoming innovators, inventors, and problem-solvers will lead our students to 21st-century careers.
