Learning to write is one of the most important skills a child can learn!  Children have a natural enthusiasm for writing—as a way to express themselves. We will be working cooperatively on most projects with a lot of positive reinforcement.  The focus will be on creativity and not necessarily the mechanics of writing.

Who says science and story time can’t go hand-in-hand? We’re thrilled to announce a special event — Storybook STEAM. We’ll feature a storybook and corresponding Science/Technology/Engineering/Art/Math project that’s perfect for preschoolers or elementary-school aged kids. 

Today we're sharing a beloved children’s classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  With bold and colorful illustrations, it tells the tale of a caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly after eating an assortment of foods. Following the story we will have some fun activities for children and parents to work on together.
