3 Interesting Reasons Why Science is So Important to STEM (STEAM) Education in Preschools

 

 
For young preschoolers learning to navigate the world, science can quickly become part of their day-to-day lives.

Children are naturally curious and so as they grow and develop, they begin to discover through play, ask important questions and hone their creativity to solve problems.

Science is the first letter in the STEM (STEAM) acronym and therefore for the next generation of scientists, it’s important that science lessons at preschool are fun, age-appropriate and engaging.

At Kids Konnect preschools, we offer children an exciting play-based curriculum, packed full of activities created with STEM (STEAM) subjects in mind.

We believe it’s never too early to expose children to STEM (STEAM) subjects and the opportunity to develop useful skills and abilities through preschool education is crucial to later success.
