Imagine you have to build a strong, tall building. What would be your first steps? You have to select the perfect site, prepare the ground and emphasise on setting a strong foundation before you start building. You wouldn’t set your foundation on the sixth floor right? Then why wait until kids are 6 years old to start setting the foundation for their education?
Years of global research has shown that young children are incredibly active learners and that the best practice in early childhood education is to break away from passive instruction and allow for more play and investigation. This kind of learning builds skills and interests that serve children throughout their school years, and later in life. STEM Kindergarten allows children to be active, engaged, and take initiative in their own learning, proven to increase overall long-term academic success.
