Tell Me More About STEM

California has the highest population of all states in the US and as a result, is home to a diverse range of people, cultures and ethnicities.

Raising children with an appreciation of differences is therefore an important part of what we do at Kids Konnect.

Teaching children to be accepting of their peers and to have empathy for others are also lifelong values that will serve them well into adulthood.

One way we teach children about cultures is by introducing them to holidays you may not celebrate at home. Click here to find out more about celebrations at preschool.
