Learn and play alongside your child in our Early Childhood Education program.  Designed for children under the age of five, our ECE program explores the concepts of STEM, tinkering, and creative problem solving through a lens of joyful learning. Help your little one build their self-expression, self-esteem, and self-awareness through thoughtful challenges and imaginative play. In addition to our well-loved favorites, we’ll be adding exciting, new activities to each of our programs.

One small step for man…one giant step for baby! In Baby Steps to STEM, your baby will be introduced to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through hands-on, play-based activities that encourage their curiosity, creativity, and sense of wonder. Alongside their peers, your little ones will develop essential find-motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and begin learning fundamental STEM concepts by interacting with the world around them. Through the class, families will be equipped to continue teaching their babies STEM concepts through everyday experiences.

Looking for more time to tinker? In Tinker Time, kids and families will develop tinkering habits of mind such as embracing a good mess, seeing mistakes as gifts, and thinking of everything as an experiment. Families will then be empowered to continue the hands-on learning in their homes, extending beyond the classroom. Tinker Time is the perfect place for kids to learn, create, and play!
